ABOUT ART DETOUR
Art Detour is Phoenix’s original art walk and the longest running arts festival weekend in Downtown Phoenix.
The annual event began in 1989, and is a roadmap to guide visitrs to meet artists in their working environments, celebrate the growth of our varied arts districts, and set a stage for discussion about the next 30 years of our city’s development. Step into more than 100 artist studios, galleries and other venues, as well as enjoy performances and activities.
The 30-year celebration will be a six-day, multi-faceted exploration of the arts and culture of America’s fifth-largest city. The schedule will include an opening night Art d’Core Gala on March 15; the “Detour” that will highlight arts experiences and studio visits within key arts districts on March 16-18; and on March 19-20, a new Symposium that will support artists’ career development and identify actionable items to create a culturally rich and economically diverse city. Location/Schedule to be announced. Visit artdetour.com for details.
Art Detour invites the public to discover the downtown Phoenix arts community by offering premiere access to downtown artists and art experiences.
The submitted artwork should help Artlink in celebrating the arts community’s growth over the past 30 years and embody the sense of discovery that the public experiences visiting private working studios and art spaces.
Eligibility: Any artist currently living and working in Arizona.
Deadline for submissions: Friday, December 15, 2017 (midnight)
The work will be chosen and the announcement made on Tuesday, December 19, 2017.
The Artlink board reserves the right to change the project timeline.
