Top Five Phoenix Arts and Culture Stories of the Week
Baz Luhrmann's highly anticipated film adaptation of The Great Gatsby hit theaters Friday, May 10. With sparkly, soirée-ready costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin, the decadent flick has spawned a slew of Daisy- and Jay-inspired fashions that range from glamorous to downright gaudy.
While it may sound appealing, draping yourself in velvet, fringe, and patterns galore, some Prohibition-style restraint is in order -- if solely to save you from looking like a costumed clown. Here are the good, the bad, and the must-avoid looks.
When Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art announced it was bringing performer, author, and kickass entertainer Tania Katan on board to mix things up a year ago, we knew we were in for something good.
Almost a year later, we've sat in a sold-out SMoCA Lounge a number of times to experience a number of Katan's programs, including Lit Lounge. The event, billed by Katan as "a little rock'n'roll, a little This American Life," is a monthly opportunity to listen to selected authors and performers from Arizona and across the country. These lineups have shared their stories, paired with live music, to a live audience in the SmoCA Lounge.
