Flight of Fancy

We’d trade all the leftover Halloween candy sitting in our freezer to spend a couple hours inside the creative mind of Phoenix artist Sarah Hurwitz. Lucky for our sweet tooth, her latest exhibition gives a glimpse.

Hurwitz’s “Jungle Box” is a birdwatching safari experience that just so happens to take place inside a shipping container gallery. With crafted foliage that drapes from the ceiling and two sets of binoculars for viewing, the show is every bit as whimsical and fun as we’ve come to expect from the artist. It’s the latest show from Halt Gallery, which recently opened the new shipping container as a long-term exhibition space for its shows, which will feature artists both local and national.

Take an adventure to the “Jungle Box” during its closing reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, November 7, at 408 East Roosevelt Street. Admission is free. Visit for more.

Fri., Nov. 7, 6-10 p.m., 2014
