If yesterday's blog comments about the mayhem on Roosevelt Row are any indication, folks are looking for a quieter place to view art on First Friday.
Of course, there's always Grand Avenue. But this past Friday, we checked out a brand spankin' new art walk at Heritage Square Park.
We rolled in around 9 p.m., just when some of the run off from Roosevelt and Grand were cruising through to catch a last glimpse of art and hit the Rose & Crown for some booze. The twelve participating artists showcased their works along the beautiful walkway and while this past event was certainly calm, we think this art walk may have some legs (check the slideshow).
The Heritage Square art walk will take place every First Friday of the month on the northwest corner of Washington and 7th St. in Phoenix.
