Some of our Authors are going to be signing books down at the squash blossom.
This is a great opportunity to show support for our local authors (many of them from our groups!), have a bite to eat at the squash blossom, or just go out and enjoy First Friday!
Creating a New Venue and Approach for Local Arts and Artists
There are too few places in Phoenix for local artists to share, be noticed, and sell their work. The city has a vibrant community of writers, poets, painters, photographers, and more; but there is a dearth of places for them to meet, exchange ideas, and meet the public. There is a need for such a venue.
Squash Blossom (705 N. First St.) is responding to that need in a totally new way—by allowing artists to use wall space and writers to meet one another and the public.
Squash Blossom is creating a First Friday presence with authors signing their books, artists and photographers sharing their work, and live music.
Offering such a supportive and available venue for the arts is something new and exciting in downtown. It deserves media attention.
