Your Life’s Style

For the 36th year, Artlink invites YOU to take an Art Detour in March 2024!

Art Detour encourages celebration of “Your Life’s Style” with hundreds of arts and culture experiences throughout the Valley and state. The events showcase Arizona’s creative culture, from visual and performing arts to public art, and even the culinary arts. While the destinations are mostly clustered within metro Phoenix area, some invite exploration of Arizona communities such as Tucson, Cottonwood, and Wickenburg.

Arizona in the spring is the perfect opportunity to connect with Arizona artists and producers and even thank them for bringing the beauty and experiences to our everyday life.

This month-long journey is presented in partnership with – and support of! – hundreds of artists, organizations, venues and arts-supporting businesses, and made possible by the generous support of our partners and funders.

Meet ARTINERARY, a new digital resource for Arizona’s creative community that includes an events calendar, map, and artist directory—all the tools necessary to drive exploration, appreciation, and support.

How We Got Started

Artlink Inc. was officially formed in 1989 following the first Art Detour open studios tour in 1988, Phoenix’s original art walk event. It grew into a multi-day self-guided tour of galleries, studios and businesses in various neighborhoods in downtown Phoenix, and expanded over 36 years.
