Here's Your Guide to Art Detour 27 in Phoenix

It's never fun when the number of good choices we're faced with outpaces the amount of time we have to enjoy them. But that's often the case during First and Third Friday in metro Phoenix, when there's never enough time to explore every exhibit and arts-related event taking place in downtown Phoenix.

Art Detour, an annual showcase of arts and culture now in its 27th year, gives us all an entire weekend to check out local galleries, art studios, and pop-ups -- plus an eclectic assortment of retail spaces, bars, and dining venues.

This year's shindig takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, and Sunday, March 8. Participants include 32 galleries, 16 art studios, 19 art spaces, 24 bars and dining establishments, four retailers, and four events described as "pop-ups & activities."
