6 Must-See Art Shows During First Friday in Phoenix on March 6

As we're all gearing up to gorge on art during Art Detour, it's worth noting that making the First Friday rounds is a fabulous way to knock some prime exhibits off your weekend art to-do list. There's a long list of things we're eager to see, but these are the exhibitions that caught our eye for Friday Friday art adventures.

8th Annual "Mutant Piñata Show"

Leave the piñata poles and baseball bats at home for this one. It's true that all manner of piñatas will be hanging from the rafters at Frontal Lobe Community Space and Gallery during First Friday, but there's no candy or money to be gained here. Instead, the piñata fare is part of a beloved annual tradition that engages artists and community members in making piñatas more than a bit off the beaten path to your local party store.
