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

A few months ago, we realized we had been drawing

field guides and maps

to Phoenix events for more than a year. And because we were (and still 

are

) not-so-secretly map-obsessed, we wanted to see what the city looked like through the eyes and hands of other local creatives. 


We asked 10 artists -- Melinda Bergman, Safwat Saleem, Sue Chenoweth, Thomas "Breeze" Marcus, Sarah Hurwitz, Marshall Shore, Angela Cazel-Jahn, Luster Kaboom, Monica Aissa Martinez, and Carrie Marill -- if they'd be game to create their own guides to the city. No medium or size was required; no scale or compass had to be used. 

Tonight, ten maps (including a mural) will be featured at Downtown's Regular Gallery to the tune of live music by Joe Myers

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.
