Phoenix Art & Culture

Arizona's Sonoran Desert sunsets, cowboy culture, and Southwestern landscapes has inspired artists for many generations. There are hundreds of small art galleries in Scottsdale and Phoenix featuring photography, paintings, sculptures and handmade crafts born from this unique part of the world. Visitors often enjoy performance art as well such as Native American tribal celebrations, flamenco dancing and even burlesque. But as one of the biggest cities in the country, Phoenix attracts world-touring art exhibits, musical artists, and Broadway plays. There is no shortage of art and culture in Phoenix these days. From Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix featuring the humblest of talented indie rock bands to Adele and Beyonce, Phoenix has much to offer in the ways of art and culture.
