Joe Willie Smith is a Phoenix-based visual and performance artist, whose interests span music, art, design and innovation. A trained musician, Smith is known for his playable musical instruments, fabricated from found materials. In this exhibition, Smith explores the uncertainty of life and how we try to plan and control a future that is still unfolding. With his musical score of graphic symbols and sound creations, Smith captures the essence of improvisation, providing a metaphor for the spontaneity of life.
