Best Art Without A Gallery
STAFF PICK: Phantom Gallery is a brilliant idea that originated
in Tucson and is now being copied by cities all over the country.
The Tucson Arts District Partnership has worked out a deal with
the owners of empty downtown storefronts to provide high-profile
exhibit space to local artists. Thus, formerly forlorn windows
are now enriched with original artwork; and emerging artists have
a place to show their stuff. The displays rotate every month or
two, and the diverse pieces--from paintings to sculpture--are
so delightfully unpredictable we're always excited to see what
pops up next.
