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

We'll admit: We're kind of nuts about maps, and ASU Art Museum in Tempe just came out with a really good one.

It's a guide to Open For Business -- the museum's community-wide installation project -- which kicks off tonight with a free opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m..

If performances by Peter Bugg and Ryan Peter Miller, Tania Katan and Pina Sbrocca, and Whitney Zama, Jessie Foster and Brody Thomas aren't enough to make you jump in the car (ok, or on a bike) ... look at that map!

More event details after the jump ...

Open for Business will feature art works installed throughout downtown Tempe businesses and at the ASU Art Museum.

Sixteen artists (who we blogged about earlier) will feature their work; each piece will address the importance of each business. Together, these pieces will invite the public to interact with the businesses' spaces along a guided map tour. Installations will be up until January 29, 2011

Free public lectures and conversations will also take place throughout the run of the exhibition.For more information, visit the ASU Art Museum website and the Open For Business Facebook page.

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.
