African-American Vibes of the City

One of the events that helped kick off Phoenix's Black History Month was the African-American Vibes of the City Exhibit located at the Phoenix Center. The exhibit was a collaborative effort that showcased the talents of several local black artist. The two-dimensional and three-dimensional works in the exhibit will be on display for the duration of the month of February.

It was also interesting to learn about the Phoenix Center itself. Located in the heart of downtown Phoenix, it not only functions as a musuem for showcasing local talent, it also serves as a school for anyone interested in learning about the arts. There are classes avaible to the public on dance, photography, ceramics, ect.

The staff were terrific and took me on a tour of the facility (I'm still wondering the guy was just cruising me or not - but again I digress). It's nice to know there a place to go if I get bit by the artistic bug that will help me develop in whatever artistic form I like.
