What better way to escape hot temps than inside the air-conditioned galleries on Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue? This month's exhibitions featured plenty of colorful pop art, as well as large installation pieces. Openings included "A New New Wave!" at MonOrchid, "Muere Vivo" at the ASU Art Museum Project Space, and the successful "Heart of the Dragon" auction at {9} The Gallery. The people-watching was as interesting as the art. Photos by Mello.
