Alison King to Host Creative Mornings Lecture at Phoenix Art Museum July 18

Arizona's many reputations have certainly shifted over the years, but one fact remains intact: it's a mecca for Midcentury Modern design.

Just ask home-based historian Alison King. The mastermind behind will be making a special appearance at Phoenix Art Museum on Friday, July 18, as part of Creative Mornings Phoenix's current series, Heritage.

In this Creative Mornings presentation, King, who's hosted her fair share of design talks in the Valley at events including Phoenix Design Week, Modern Phoenix Week, and Pecha Kucha, will discuss Arizona as a mid-century marvel.
