Art Detour 24:
Every year in March, Phoenix’s arts community organizations, headed by Art Link, team together to bring us Art Detour. This year is no exception and is sure to be a fantastic display of local and regional talent! For some of you who arn’t familiar with this whole thing… the weekend is packed with free gallery openings of over 70+ spaces, special events, pop-ups, vendors, local restaurant deals, and self guided tours of Phoenix’s art scene. While the majority of things going on, I unfortunately won’t be able to see due to time restraints and hosting “The Forty Eighth” at MonOrchid, there are a couple things I’m interested in making sure I see. First and foremost! Willo North Gallery is exhibiting local artist Peter Bugg and street artist Dose. Can’t miss that! Also, EyeLounge is having their yearly benefit show to help raise money to support their gallery! Check out the 6x6 show for affordable pieces by some well respected local artists. Modified Arts will be showcasing “Phoenix+” which I’m particularly interested in because of the amount of ASU-bred photographers involved. Legend City, home to artist Randy Slack and photographer Brandon Sullivan is also on my list of places to check out, as is Bragg’s annual mutant pinata show! Which is always fun to see! The Icehouse is of course a must see! And if there is time I’m definitely going to try to make Marshall Shore’s “History Echoes” Tour on Sunday at 2PM. Of course there is plenty more to see and I encourage everyone to do so, including stopping by MonOrchid to say hello! We’ll be open most of the day today, ALL DAY on Saturday, and most of the afternoon on Sunday! If you havn’t seen the exhibition, do so, you won’t regret it!
