Art walks are more often about people watching and shenanigans and less about the actual art. We're here to guide you through both. Presenting our very own Field Guide -- an evolving guide to art walks around town.

From time to time, we'll introduce some of our favorite spots and dish out some insider information. If you have any tips or tricks, share 'em in the comments section.

More First Friday hints and details after the jump ... 

On the Map
Ingrid Wells, Molly Mendoza, Alex Empty and Taylor Ryan @ eye lounge
Four local artists are showcasing their work at eye lounge this month -- in very different fashions. Molly Mendoza took Sharpies to the wall of the gallery's "project room" in her large-scale installation, "Suburbia Wildlife", tattoo artists Alex Empty and Taylor Ryan created prints, paintings and furniture in their first gallery show "Interdependent", and painter Ingrid Wells hung her latest series (and last work before she moves to San Francisco), called "colors of separation". The artists will host an opening tonight at 6 p.m. Eye lounge is at 419 E. Roosevelt St.

- For some quick shopping (other than in the galleries), check out Indie Arthouse on Grand Ave, the GROWop, and Kooky Krafts

The Phoenix Art Museum has great parking (and great art, go figure). On-street parking is limited along Roosevelt Street between First and Seventh streets (Note: meters downtown are still checked until 8 p.m.). Or if you can nab a spot, check out the free street parking on Grand Avenue ... 

- If you missed it, our eleventh limited-edition jackalope sticker, designed by Anton Anger, will be making its debut tonight! (Find a few at each location on the map.) 

Happy Friday!

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.
