PHOENIX — Nonprofit organization Artlink will put a spotlight on Arizona’s arts and culture community with the 34th annual Art Detour in March.
The monthlong celebration includes hundreds of arts and cultural activities, such as a fashion show, the Downtown Chamber Series at Park Central in Phoenix and the Creative City Symposium.
The 9th annual gala will highlight the event, which will invite artists, collectors, philanthropists and community partners to Park Central on March 11 to celebrate the massive growth of Arizona’s arts community, according to a press release.
“We have seen a huge increase in arts and culture engagement across Arizona in recent years,” Catrina Kahler, president and CEO of Artlink, said in the release.
“Art Detour has expanded with this flourishing art scene, and we are thrilled to connect this celebration with communities throughout the Valley and state.”
Originally launched as an art walk by artists in 1989, Art Detour later expanded into a week-long celebration with the help of Artlink before growing to a monthlong event last year to allow more time for people to experience the event amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artists, venues, businesses and organizations can also register with the nonprofit to be included as an Artlink Articipant.
