5 Must-See First Friday Shows in Phoenix on July 4

First Friday heats up tomorrow with creative works going up all over the city. This month, Phoenix's favorite art-filled evening falls on the Fourth of July. Artlink's First Friday Trolley Tour will be taking a brief hiatus for the holiday weekend, but don't let that deter you. Most galleries and art spaces will still be open.

Here are our picks for shows you will not want to miss this Friday.

Halt Gallery Summer Shows

Halt Gallery has two big shows up this month: Laura Spalding Best's "7th Street to 7th Avenue" at Hot Box Gallery and Elysia Holland Michaelsen's "Replan Your Work, Rework Your Plan" in the project room at Eye Lounge. We've talked before about how well these exhibitions are suited to their respective locations.
