Top Five Phoenix Arts and Culture Stories of the Week
It's a wonder that Adam Dumper ever finds time to sleep, especially since the Tempe urban artist, live painting guru, and hip-hop impresario keeps a pretty hectic schedule. When he isn't turning canvases into stunning-looking creations, the artist known as Dumperfoo is busy creating flyers and doing design work in front of his computer or overseeing The Blunt Club at Yucca Tap Room each week.
Dumper's been plenty busy and heavily involved in the urban and hip-hop scenes for years now - ranging from his longtime job at now-defunct and highly-influential Wet Paint Artist Supply (which shuttered back in November) to doing the live painting thing at countless club nights. Despite celebrating his 40th birthday, the dude's got no plans to slow down, which he gladly informed Jackalope Ranch during a recent interview.
"Have Fun, Try On!" So say the small signs sitting inside the lacquered white cabinets at Kendra Scott Jewelry. It's a hands-on, non-stuffy approach to jewelry shopping that fits the wares beautifully. Displayed in the bauble shop's cases are enough candy colored gems and customizable pieces to fill the jewelry box of our wildest Container Store dreams. As the latest addition to Scottsdale Quarter, the boutique will have you wishing you had extra limbs to hold all the rings and necklaces.
