Heart of the City: Phx is a local grassroots event, directed by Reginald McKinley, that aims to promote the unification of the Arizona arts communities with the greater masses within Arizona as well as raise the platform for the premiered artists to be recognized within the US and abroad. By booking artists from all over the state (Payson, Yuma, Tucson, etc.) and national artists from Albuquerque and New York, Friday’s Heart of the City: Phx will redefine the expectations for live art demonstrations in the Valley.
The programming will start with live rotational figure models donning the premiered designers’ creations. This hour offers the audience the opportunity to sketch the models, look at the two-level hanging art gallery, order premium drinks and food, or just network with the artist while DJ Sac Fly, resident DJ of Heart of the City: Phx, spins the most eclectic and modern sounds. As time segues into the 8 o’clock hour the sun sets and the live show begins.
