The best-laid staycation plans gang aft agley, and ours ganged majorly agley. We need a culture break even more desperately than usual, and meanwhile, the ambitiously retentive school-year routine has pulled out of the station once again. So we're sneaking off to the secret oasis of all that's classy, ASU Art Museum, to partake of its annual family-friendly summer mega-exhibition while it lasts. This year, it's "Collecting Arizona," a panorama of creative works both by our homegrown artists and about our Centennial-partyin' state, its culture, people, image, and delights, from history as well as in the now.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: June 9. Continues through Sept. 29, 2012
