From timeless paintings in the Louvre to creative bento boxes, art can be found just about anywhere. And the Valley of the Sun is no exception. Tempe Art A Gogh-Gogh combines visual art with talented local bands each month. On Friday, August 31, the event's organizers will celebrate its two-year anniversary with an impressive mix of art, dance, and music, coinciding with Tempe’s Final Friday Artwalk. The band line-up includes Tempe staples such as Japhy’s Descent, Sunorus, and Doctor Bones, with beats by DJ KNS and a sultry belly dance performance by The Opal Collective. Resident artists’ work will be showcased alongside live art by graffiti artists and painters like JJ Horner and Queenloopy.
