Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Phoenix is a ship out of water... both figuratively and literally. We are located amidst an arid desert where people could not otherwise dwell, and yet water is artificially diverted to keep us nourished. And, as supply is always finite, so is this water available to the valley. Phoenix's limited supply comes from a share of the Colorado River, the Salt River Project, and ground water. There is an increasing need for conservation as the state suffers a drought and global warming continues to advance...we must act as a community to take care of this ship.

The countdown to Best of Phoenix begins! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix. No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?

Imagine PHX, so far:

100: Steven Revering's Westward Ho

99: Jon Ashcroft's Suspended in Geography

98: William LeGoullon's Table

97. Jason Hill's Phoenix Financial Center



And, hey! It's lunch time. Check out Chow Bella's 100 Favorite Dishes for some foodie inspiration.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
