Phoenix First Friday Art Walk



Ladies and gentleman, how about an evening of high (or low) culture in downtown Phoenix?  Look no further than the Phoenix First Friday Art Walk!  People walking by ashimmering sculpture

Sculpture in the Phoenix Art MuseumA good place to begin your evening is at the Phoenix Art Museum.  Parking and admission are free from 6-10pm.  The museum has a large permanent collection with galleries that showcase Western art, contemporary art, and Eastern art.  They also have excellent traveling exhibits.

After some quiet browsing, head right out the front doors where you can pick up a map of First Friday galleries and catch a complimentary shuttle to other art walk hotspots.
There are several routes; pick just one for a relaxed evening or try them all if you have lots of energy!  All routes stop at a variety of galleries for your art viewing pleasure.  Make sure to stop at bustling Roosevelt Street for street fair style excitement.  With art, bands, and booths offering everything from jewelry to politics, it offers eclectic shopping and people watching.

Even if browsing art galleries isn't your style, downtown on First Friday can still be a good choice for a date.  The Heard Museum, the Phoenix Art Museum, and, during the winter, the Japanese Friendship Garden are all open late and offer FREE admission!
