Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Independence Day fireworks draw the eyes to the spectacular side of this great nation while helping us forget that truth, justice, and the American Way aren't always as simple as waving the flag. The Arizona Artist Collective looks beyond the bombast of the Fourth of July on Friday for its latest show, "Liberty and Justice for Art."

For the AAC's first solo show, 12 artists of the collective explore their own relationship with the ideals of the United States, warts and all. In Larry Willis's The Rising, the menace of war comes alive in acrylic on a triangular canvas as silhouettes of military jets are juxtaposed with the visage of a wary woman. Single-line artist Xandriss highlights the folly of security theater with her work Please Remove Your Belt.

The opening reception for "Liberty and Justice for Art" is from 6 to 10 p.m at {9} The Gallery, 1229 Grand Avenue. Admission is free, and more information about the show can be found at www.azartist.org.

Fri., July 4, 6-10 p.m.; Sundays, 12-5 p.m.; Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 12-7 p.m.; Fridays, 12-10 p.m. Starts: July 4. Continues through July 31, 2014

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
