    "Thinkspace is honored to have the chance to showcase our resident artists to the student body and faculty of the University of Arizona along with the residents of Tucson as a whole. With ‘Impetus’ we aim to shed light on the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement that was birthed in Los Angeles and continues to spread out the world over, gaining momentum and winning over new devotees at an astounding rate. With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture imagery, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people. One doesn’t need a degree or bring home a six-figure income to enjoy and collect the works of artists that come from this movement. This exciting and challenging movement is showcased in ‘Impetus’ via the works of 25 artists who create within a wide array of styles. Come discover your new favorite artist and find out why Thinkspace is regarded as one of the torch bearers of the New Contemporary Movement."
