Canvas Shoes by Joseph "Sentrock" Perez at bucketfeet.com
Joseph "Sentrock" Perez has been living in Chicago for a while now, but we've still got some hometown love for the artist who remains active in the Phoenix art scene. This summer, we found out that Sentrock won Bucketfeet's next artist contest, but we were even more excited last week to hear that the shoes would be available just in time for the holidays. Wearable art? Yes please. The shoes are $68 and available in men's and women's sizes.
Museum membership at Phoenix Art Museum
Think of it this way: Gifting a museum membership is like buying someone thousands of pieces of art that they don't have to find space for in their home. Membership to PAM comes with unlimited free admission and invitations to members-only exhibition previews, among other things. This is a must-have for any art enthusiast in the Valley. General membership is $75 and valid for two adults and any children or grandchildren under the age of 17. Visit www.phxart.org or call 602-257-2124.
