First Friday at Phoenix Art Museum
The Whole Story is a live, quarterly show that premiered in January 2017 at Phoenix Art Museum, and will continue to take place at the Museum for parts 2, 3, and 4 in 2017. Through stories about personal experiences, The Whole Story seeks to bring greater depth and breadth to our understanding of one another and the issues we face surrounding identity and connection, exploring both themes particular to the black community as well as more universal experiences told from a black perspective. Joining the show's director, Rachel Eseoghene Egboro, are featured storytellers, Brandon Pearson, Leah Marche, Sule Greg C. Wilson, Necheé Chrystal Stewart and Sharifa Rowe. Tickets for The Whole Story: Part 2 are available HERE. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. Seating is first-come, first-seated. Doors to Whiteman Hall will open at 7PM.
[nueBOX] is a non-profit residency program for local artists interested in the exploring their own creative process. We push the artist outside of the BOX, and bring the community inside. The program provides talented artists with a place to rehearse, develop installations, discuss works-in-progress, and showcase new work.
The Phoenix Metro area is rapidly changing and expanding, creating opportunities for development and improvement to city infrastructure. In an attempt to [de]construct and navigate physical spaces withini the city of Phoenix, Estrella Payton (visual artist), Felix Herbst (sound artist), Jordan Daniels (Movement Artist), and Steven Redondo (Movement Artist), will combine elements of different artistic media to explore two intersecting and parallel entities, each with the ability to link and divide: the Salt River and the light rail system.

Four Chambers Press is an independent community literary magazine and small press based in Phoenix, AZ whose mission is to give greater visibility to the literary arts, encourage their larger participation in the cultural scene, and develop a more active community of writers and readers. A series of prose poems, Channels, Frequencies, and Sequences takes personality and turns it into a playlist, formalizing the idea of the internet radio station and pushing the algorithm to its absurd, (il)logical conclusion. What does it mean to be machine-readable? What does it say about ourselves when the computer knows us better than we do? What is the self but a haphazard assortment of traits, thoughts, emotions, and experience anyway? Why not put it on shuffle? Why not ask it to dance?
