Monday, January 14: Barrett-Jackson @ WestWorld of Scottsdale
We love our cars in Phoenix. With the spread of the land we occupy, how could we not? Miles upon miles are covered with various modes of transportation that represent our personalities, lifestyles, and a way to get from point A to B. History and innovation have spawned thousands of enthusiasts, collectors, and connoisseurs of four-wheeled acceleration, and there's a place that brings them together in an annual gathering of awe.

The Barrett-Jackson car auction will start right up and run smooth at Westworld of Scottsdale, 16601 North Pima Road, Sunday, January 13, through Sunday, January 20. Since 1971, the auction has drawn in fans from all over the world to witness offerings of master craftsmanship that revisit the past in spectacular fashion. From the elegance of a 1939 Bentley to the raw muscle of a Mach 1 Mustang, these beauties will leave you tempted to take out a second mortgage. On second thought, it might prove smarter to partake in test drives, games, live entertainment, and food from El Hefe. Price: Daily tickets range from $8 to $55. Weeklong passes are $100 to $130 -- Craig Smith

Tuesday, January 15: "Trajectory" @ ASU Art Museum
Tempe has welcomed traveling Portuguese artist Miguel Palma to the ASU Art Museum, 699 South Mill Avenue, to show his work exploring the Southwest's unique desert landscape. As a part of the Desert Initiative: Desert One regional collaboration, the exhibition, "Trajectory," investigates Manifest Destiny and the military history of the American Southwest.

The artist developed a "Desert Initiative Remote Shuttle," which he used to gather images of the arid desert landscape. Along with the images it collected, the shuttle will be on display as a part of the show. The work serves as a visual representation of exploration with ties to the local history, investigating how the past will affect the futures of both terrestrial and extraterrestrial exploration. -- Lauren Saria
