Five Must-Attend Lectures in Phoenix This March

Better not obliterate too many brain cells while spring breaking, buddy. There are far too many lectures to take in this March. Time to trade in your beer helmet for a thinking cap, class is in session.

"Labors of Love: The Whimsy of Valley Yard Art" @ Burton Barr Central Library Art consultant and collector Gretchen Freeman will talk about the quirky intersection of outsider art and landscaping at Burton Barr Central Library at 7 p.m. March 14. She's discussed the topic with New Times before, saying "These are the kinds of things that make Phoenix unique. They're little jewels, little landmarks that add personality to the city."
