Artlink Debuts #phxdots Stickers During Art Detour 27, March 7 and 8, 2015
Artlink has created an overall “Connect the Dots” program with a variety of elements that highlight how the arts helps visitors connect the dots to create their own unique downtown experience. The “connect the dots” elements include the Detour/First Fridays Map, dot venue signs for participating locations, a dot stencil temporary way-finding program leading visitors from trolley stops to venues, and our newest element, “Connect – #phxdots” stickers, which will debut at this year’s Art Detour 27.
“Connect – #phxdots” stickers will available at all participating Articipant art venues: art spaces, studios and galleries on the Detour map. When you visit a participating gallery or studio, you’ll be able to pick up a free sticker that will identify you as a Detour guest. In turn, participating restaurants and bars (those listed on the Detour map and/or exhibiting a “We’re Connected – #phxdots” decal in their window) will provide discounts to anyone wearing a “Connect – #phxdots” sticker.
This is a pilot program and our goal is to roll it out as a regular feature during First Fridays throughout the year. We believe it’s a great way to connect arts visitors to the businesses that support the arts and benefit from the buzz of activity that the arts generate.
