Congratulations to the six artists whose work was selected to be featured on the CitySkate “street gallery” installation that will be on display throughout the holiday season.
Artlink and CityScape Phoenix invited local artists to submit samples of previously completed work to be considered for display on a structure that is a part of CitySkate in downtown Phoenix.
We were thrilled with the response and excited to provide an opportunity for artists to participate in this holiday tradition that draws 200,000 people every year. It was the first year of this collaboration, and we’re already looking forward to next year.
The installation will be on display until January 8, 2017.
