It's that time of year again. Time for things to get a little bit, well, chaotic.

On Tuesday, September 23, artist Randy Slacks announced the return of his annual collaborative exhibition, "Chaos Theory," at Legend City Studios. Now in its 15th year, "Chaos Theory" and grown from group exhibition to downtown art tradition. And we expect most of the Phoenix arts scene can't help but get a little giddy as this lineup of fresh faces and familiar standbys.
