Grab some cash and get ready for a display of serious creative talent. Phoenix Center for the Arts will host the first Phoenix Festival of the Arts, a three-day celebration that aims to unite local artists and arts organizations with a public arty party.
“The Phoenix Festival of the Arts grew from the realization that Phoenix didn't have its own signature arts festival," Joseph Benesh writes. "It also presents an opportunity to represent what the Center does best, which is to represent all the different art mediums."
Benesh also notes that the festival will differ from Art Detour -- a weekend arts celebration with a similar mission scheduled for March 2 and 3 -- and will cater to all kinds of art forms, including dance, performance, and music.
Fri., Dec. 7, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 8, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 9, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2012
