Artlink has created a new way to promote First and Third Friday exhibitions and activities. In addition to ArtlinkPhoenix.com, we invite you to explore a new online map Phoenix Urban Guide (aka “PUG”).
PUG is a new destination map that connects Phoenix residents and visitors to cultural destinations, dining, retail and more. Currently in the BETA (or “puppy” stage), PUG was developed by Artlink Inc. through a ReinventPHX grant in partnership with the City of Phoenix Community & Economic Development Department, the City of Phoenix Office of Arts & Culture, Valley Metro, Downtown Phoenix Inc., and the Phoenix Convention Center, and in collaboration with the Roosevelt Row, Grand Avenue, Central, and Warehouse Arts Districts.

3. Interested in discovering new places?
Our goal with the new route and the expanded trolley hubs is to make it easier for downtown visitors to discover the full spectrum of arts experiences available on First Friday. With this new system, you can ride light rail, or drive and park at a number of locations and have ready access to a free trolley to get you everywhere you want to go.
Discover all that First Fridays in downtown Phoenix has to offer!
To get your art exhibited in a local art space, visit each space to see which ones may best fit your style. Contact the curator directly about their submission policy.
