Hey Amarillo is a weekly, one-on-one interview podcast featuring the people and stories of Amarillo, Texas

Feb 13, 2023

A conversation with Rachel Flores, the Executive Director of Amarillo Art Institute. This nonprofit offers art workshops and classes all year long at Sunset Center, where Flores is helping spearhead the renovation of Arts in the Sunset. In this episode, she tells host Jason Boyett about growing up in Bushland, moving back to Amarillo as an adult, and beginning her job just a year before the passing of Ann Crouch, the artist and visionary who owned and managed the Sunset Center property. On the cusp of its reopening, Flores explains the vision behind the restored Arts in the Sunset and the eventual return of the city's beloved First Friday Art Walk.
