Seven Must-See Art Shows During Third Friday in Downtown Phoenix

It's Third Friday in downtown Phoenix, which means there are plenty of excuses to get out an see the latest work by local and visiting artists.

In celebration of our second birthday (and Third Friday, of course), we're releasing our latest limited-edition Jackalope sticker by Monica Aissa Martinez.

The local painter says "we don't know the gender of the jackalope, and despite super technology we may never know, but we do know it's creative. It is North American." She describes the artwork beneath the jackalope as based on Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tracking of the jackalope wondering downtown Phoenix. "We imagine it's looking for a wall, a paper, a canvas ... Any fine surface it might locate to leave a mark or two or a hundred on."

Keep an eye out for one of the stickers at any of the Downtown coffee shops or galleries (especially the seven described below) tonight ...
