Not only can you see What Laura Says for free at The Heard Museum Friday, you can also get free ice cream. The venerable downtown museum ("Word Famous For A Reason" appears to be their new tag line) has all sorts of cool programs aimed at locals this summer, including free admission some summer Saturdays and NU, the showcase with What Laura (and Shamrock Farms) as well as DJ Chris Flores and short films about indigenous arctic communities. Oh yes, and the event is right off the light rail at Encanto and North Central Avenue.
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.
