Street Art Phoenix Arizona

Maynard’s Street Art Obsession – Phoenix, Arizona

By: Matthew

Having spent a good deal of my life in the Phoenix area, I have seen it evolve. The Phoenix I knew from 15 years ago, was all about one kind of art and that was southwestern, and for the most part you went to Scottsdale for that. Then phoenix launched a long-term downtown revitalization project. Before you knew it, galleries started popping up all throughout the area. To follow that up the city teamed up with the Phoenix Art Museum and the main branch of the library to create First Friday. On the first Friday of every month all the galleries, the art museum and the library all join forces to put on a night of art for all to enjoy. Not long after that the street art started appearing. On my last visit, we found a nice selection of art and it wasn’t just concentrated in the downtown Roosevelt area, which bodes well for the local art community. The majority of our findings were murals, which is good, as locals tend to be less apprehensive to that style. While street art can be found throughout the city we concentrated on Grand Avenue, Roosevelt Street, and 7th Street all within the confines of downtown.
