Did you get caught up at the "Chaos Theory" show at Legend City during First Friday two weeks ago and didn't get a chance to see the "Phoenix as Wonderland: Art from New Times' Best of Phoenix 2009" exhibit? Maybe you got too liquored up at Bikini and spaced on it?
Well, no worries because the exhibit continues tonight with a free Third Friday reception. The event will showcase awesome art as well as killer tuneage by The Coitus, the Phoenix Chorale, and psych 101. Many of the shows originals art pieces are available for purchase as well as the Joe Arpaio votive candles and artist-made postcards. Also, Giant Coffee will be giving away free coffee and ice tea. So light rail, walk, drive, or bike down to the centrally-located [merz]project, 1437 North First Street, and check it out.
Reception hours are from 6 to 10 p.m. Music will get started at 7:30. For more information, call 602-229-8478 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
