Twenty-seven years ago, the first Art Detour took place in downtown Phoenix, showing to the public offerings of many art galleries, art spaces and arts venues over one weekend. Its success led to the popular and still-growing First Friday night art walks in central Phoenix. As Art Detour’s creator, Artlink Inc., says on its website: “Art Detour acts as a roadmap â€“ guiding visitors to explore the arts and culture of our city and discover the myriad of art spaces downtown.”
The website, artlinkphoenix.com, quotes Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton: “Art Detour is one of the most important events in Phoenix’s calendar.” So take the mayor’s advice and enjoy the weekend — and make sure you stop here at the Heard Museum while you do.
On Saturday, March 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., bring your art treasures to the Heard’s Steele Auditorium to be examined by independent art appraisers in the Heard Museum Council’s semi-annual American Indian Art & Artifacts Appraisal Day. Click here for event details â†’
