5 New Year's Resolutions for Artists in Metro Phoenix

After recent visits by the ghosts of art exhibits past, present and future, we awoke with five resolutions certain to help all sorts of artists up their creativity and community engagement.

Work outside your comfort zone.

Maybe you've been so keen on supporting the arts in your own familiar venues and neighborhoods that you've forgotten to stretch yourself into new spaces and places. Make more time this year for venturing beyond your own studio, gallery, or arts district. Hit different art walks, galleries, museums, and alternative art spaces outside your normal art beat.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
