Blue Lotus, a water lily that is native to North Africa, grows along the Nile. In ancient Egypt, it symbolized the triumph of wisdom over suffering. In Tucson it is a symbol for the Blue Lotus Artists Collective. The president of the board and the gallery Laura Pendleton Miller says, “Like the Blue Lotus, Black artists have risen from harsh environments to bring beauty to the world.” The gallery had its soft opening last spring and will have its official opening on November 3, 2023.
