Where to begin? That is the ultimate question when it comes to the annual free festival and self-guided tour that is Art Detour.
Now in its 26th year, the celebration of Phoenix's growing arts scene covers more than 100 stops, including galleries, pop-up shows, art spaces, cultural venues, and studios.
Lucky for attendees, there's a handy map available at all those participating locations as well as a double-decker bus that circulates through the Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue districts, among other arty hubs in the area.
Your best bet? We'd recommend perusing the map in advance. It's available online at www.artlinkphoenix.com, along with more details. Pick and choose the spots and shows that sound coolest to you and have at 'em. If all else fails, prioritize your must-sees, improvise, and wear comfy shoes -- you've got a lot of ground to cover.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, March 8 and 9.
