Here's the 80-Artist Lineup for "Chaos Theory 17" in Downtown Phoenix

Phoenix artist Randy Slack has announced the lineup for "Chaos Theory 17," the latest iteration of his annual invitational exhibition held at the 7,000-square-foot Legend City Studios in downtown Phoenix.

It starts at 6 p.m. on First Friday, October 7, and runs through 2 a.m. the following morning. In addition to the art, gallery-goers can enjoy live music performed by Glob, Gene Trip, Sunn Trio, and Bear State. 

"I almost didn't do it this year," Slack says. It's a ton of work, and Slack says he sometimes wonders whether it's worth all the grief. But in the end, he decided to give it a go. And now, the 2017 show could shape up to be his largest "Chaos Theory" exhibition yet.

Slack invited 80 artists, the largest number in the exhibition’s history, to participate.
