Okay, guys. It's here. Maybe you're excited for the star-studded line-up of speakers, the awesomely geeky events, or the general grade-A ogling at all the intricate and impressive costumes. Either way Phoenix Comicon 2015 is coming. We've got three events to either help you celebrate this cultural or completely avoid it, and the best part? You won't spend a dime.
Roosevelt Row Artist Meet & Greet
Join fellow artists to get your in-real-life social networking on during this month's Roosevelt Row Artist Meet & Greet at Paz Cantina, 1011 North Third Street, on Tuesday, May 26. The goal is to create a space where local artists from different backgrounds who work in different media can interact and share ideas, works in progress, or stories. Be part of strengthening downtown Phoenix's local artist community from 6 to 8 p.m. at Paz. For more information, check out the Roosevelt Row CDC Facebook page.

Patterns are everywhere. In what we hear, in what we say, and in what we see, it's easy to constantly pick up on repetitions and patterns. A a part of the museum's free admission Wednesday, hear how local artist Madison Creech creates and uses patterns in her printed work during Creating Pattern: Artist Madison Creech at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue, on Wednesday, May 27, at 7 p.m. For more information, visit phxart.org.
