Alwun House Gallery & Gardens

1204 E. Roosevelt St. Phoenix, AZ 85006 | Central Phoenix | 602-253-7887

Location Description:

Having debuted back in 1971, the Alwun House arguably sired the entire downtown arts district. Housed in a historic two-story built in 1912 home, owners Kim Moody and Dana Johnson the joint as both a gallery and studio for themselves and local artists. There's also an ample stage area in the back that has hosted fetish balls, poetry slams, fire-dancing, experimental music, and performance art.
