Home Is Where the Art Is

To celebrate their town's 125th birthday, the residents of Superior, Arizona, will open their doors for the fourth-annual Home and Building Tour. The town, 30 minutes east of Apache Junction, is well-known for its copper mines, which were shut down in the 1980s. With its anchor industry closed, Superior was forced to reinvent itself.

Superior's artists and historians will host tours of renovated real estate showcasing local art and music, including an antique show at the recently refurbished Magma Club (c.1920) and the Mata Ortiz potters from Mexico will be crafting and firing pottery throughout the weekend.
