A mural for the ages
Our friends at the Phoenix Center for the Arts are revving up for the inaugural Phoenix Festival of the Arts, the municipality’s first signature arts festival. The free, family-friendly, three-day arts extravaganza will take place in the heart of downtown Phoenix at Margaret Hance Park, December 7–9, 2012.
As of press time, over 80 local artists had signed up to participate in a collective, community mural; all are invited to join-in, pick up a brush and contribute to the “mural of the ages” – no experience required. Visitors can also enjoy live performances, arts and crafts vendors, food trucks, and beer and wine gardens.
Hance Park is located at 1202 N. 3rd Street. Festival hours: December 7, 2–9 p.m.; December 8, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; December 9, 10 a.m– 5 p.m.
