Five Must-See Arts and Culture Events This Week in Metro Phoenix

We know, the beginning of the work week sucks. But if you take a quick look at the calendar, you'll see we're off to a pretty good week of art events, sports games, dance parties, and more. Here are our must-see events from now to the weekend...

Monday, December 17: "Environmental Memories of South Central Phoenix" @ George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center If you're tempted to make the argument that this city has no palpable history, take one look at the current exhibition at George Washington Carver Museum, 415 East Grant Street. "Environmental Memories of South Central Phoenix" tells the story of south Phoenix long ago -- when neighbors swam the canals, farmed in their backyards, and picnicked along the riverbank.
