First Friday in Phoenix: 7 Must-See Shows July 5
First Friday heats up July 5 with creative works going up all over the city. Here are our picks for shows not to miss this artful evening.
Coyote Ghost @ Palabra Studios
"Coyote Ghost," which will be on view at Palabra Studios through July 5, will be Rebecca Green's farewell show to Phoenix, she says. "It's a way to acknowledge all that the area and the people here have given me."
Green moved here from Michigan in July of 2012, when a teaching job brought her significant other, Matt, to the Valley of the Sun. She says they both wanted to experience new things outside of their homestate, and that they are moving again to continue exploring.
But, unlike many Phoenix defectors, Green says she will miss the art scene when she leaves. "My favorite part about Phoenix is the people, and that I was able to dive into a highly talented and passionate group of artists," she says. "I joined The Lodge studio as soon as I got here and it allowed me to hit the ground running and make the most of my time. I don't know if it will be so easy to break into communities in other cities." Read more. -- Katrina Montgomery
