JB Snyder's Fifth Street Paint Supply Now Open in Downtown Phoenix

Downtown's poster child for the arts may be Roosevelt Row, but the true homegrown creativity is found on its streets -- like Fifth and Sixth -- which spider off the main drag, looking like little more than quiet neighborhood stretches.

It's in these homes, often boasting colorful public art themselves, that you'll find one of the city's coziest beer and wine bars, treasure troves of vintage designs, and, starting this week, a competitive supply of spray paint.

Fifth Street Paint Supply officially opened its doors this past weekend, after nearly two months of construction. The 600-square-foot shop is housed in the front rooms of a one-story home on Fifth Street's east side -- a home owned by prominent Valley muralist J.B. Snyder. A home where he still sleeps at night.
