With the arrival of Art Detour’s 25th year comes an opportunity to take pause and look back at what came before. In that spirit, and in honoring the history of downtown Phoenix, the Downtown Devil has prepared a series of 25’s to commemorate the occasion. This week, we present 25 spaces — an overview of 25 locations that helped shape Art Detour and its monthly iteration, First Friday, into what they are today. This list is far from comprehensive, but we feel
it provides a representation of each era of the downtown art scene’s development.
Descriptions by Travis Arbon, Connor Descheemaker, Alexis Macklin, Domenico Nicosia and Danika Worthington. Interactive designed by Mauro Whiteman.
