Joe Cornett, Jr started noticing unique basketball hoops while riding in the car to his basketball games with his father and brother. As Joe became interested in photography he never forgot these unique pieces of Americana, the landscapes around them or the countless other ones that might be out there somewhere. For Joe, the search was on. His incredible basketball hoop project has taken him from Arizona and the desert southwest all the way to Maryland.

Joe Cornett, Jr was recently awarded the “Emerging Artist Award” at the 2011 Flagstaff Viola Awards and The Framing Department is proud to be working with Joe on his framing for this and other projects.

His solo exhibition opens Friday. March 25 5:00-7:00pm at Coconino Community College in Flagstaff.
