Art Detour


Did you hear? Phoenix Magazine named Art Detour the “Best Arts Festival” in 2015!

Join us this weekend for Art Detour 28!

March 19 and 20, 2016

The event that helped launch the First Fridays Art Walk phenomenon, Art Detour acts as a roadmap–guiding visitors to explore the arts and culture of our city and discover the myriad of art spaces downtown.

It also offers a chance for visitors to meet artists in their working environment. The event features self-guided tours of over 100 artist studios, galleries, and other venues, as well as performances and activities. A “Kids’ Detour” with family-friendly activities will also be featured, as well as pop-up galleries, and docent-guided shuttles.

Exhibition Information:

We invite you to enjoy the destinations listed and depicted on the map below. Find what they have happening here.

Art Detour Maps:

Maps will be available at park-and-ride info Hubs and at participating venues. Or click on the images below to take a closer look!

NOTE: This year there will be a second shuttle route that will take visitors to the studios participating artists in the downtown area. We invite you to enjoy this opportunity to visit with artists in their working space.
