Artlink Phoenix logoToday, I share a classic Change of Venue Friday. That means it’s on a topic that may be far from the law, but that lawyers and law students are bound to enjoy it.

On Saturday and Sunday, get out and enjoy some art. The Phoenix Art Detour is a free two-day event that celebrates and shares the work of hundreds of artists throughout downtown. Artlink, which hosts the event, says that more than 90 galleries and “pop-up art spaces” will be open for viewing.

“The event that launched Phoenix’s First Fridays Art Walk phenomenon is returning to the streets of downtown Phoenix for its 25th year on March 2 and 3, 2013. The silver anniversary of Art Detour will take a historical look at the downtown arts scene, celebrate the many people who contributed to its success over the years, and recognize the artists, galleries, organizations and businesses contributing to the arts today.”

WHAT:   Art Detour 25 (25th Annual – Silver Anniversary)

WHEN:   Saturday, March 2, and Sunday, March 3, 11 am to 5 pm.
