Here are a handful of great exhibits that we think you will enjoy on your Third Friday journey through downtown Phoenix. More info is always available on Artlink’s website.
“That Which Makes Up Space” + “Haunted”
Modified Arts is proud to present long-time artist Jonathan Howard, as well as to debut the work of Patrick Dean Hubbell. Howard’s work responds to the “increasingly paranoid US cultural moment… and takes a distinctly darker turn.” Hubbell’s work focuses on technique and mimics the intersection of identity and nature. Without a doubt, this exhibit will captivate your point of view and leave you with something to think about. Doors from 6-9 p.m., located at 407 E. Roosevelt st. More info on Modified’s website.
