You Are Here: A Collection of Maps of Phoenix Opens Tonight at Regular Gallery

A few months ago, we realized we had been drawing field guides and maps to Phoenix events for more than a year. And because we were (and still are) not-so-secretly map-obsessed, we wanted to see what the city looked like through the eyes and hands of other local creatives. 

We asked 10 artists -- Melinda Bergman, Safwat Saleem, Sue Chenoweth, Thomas "Breeze" Marcus, Sarah Hurwitz, Marshall Shore, Angela Cazel-Jahn, Luster Kaboom, Monica Aissa Martinez, and Carrie Marill -- if they'd be game to create their own guides to the city. No medium or size was required; no scale or compass had to be used. 

Tonight, ten maps (including a mural) will be featured at Downtown's Regular Gallery to the tune of live music by Joe Myers

We can give you a couple sneak peeks of work from the show, which includes maps of artists' homes and neighborhoods, as well as mountains, cultural irrigation landscapes, and a map to one of Phoenix's oldest murder mysteries. But if you want to leave a mark on our own interactive map, you'll have to check it out in person. 

Stop by Regular Gallery, 918 N. 6th St. from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight and on November's First Friday to chat with the artists about their work and inspirations. We'll even give you pinned surprise.
