True art lovers will go anywhere in anticipation of finding the next great painter or sculptor and getting a fantastic deal. These events celebrate art in all its forms and the artists who spend their lives bringing beauty to the world. So, during the month of March, art lovers converge on Arizona to explore several great art shows and get a taste of Western hospitality Arizona style. Why not make this year the one you join them.
The first of the events actually starts in January and ends in March, that is how popular it is. Being able to run a show for that period of time takes a lot of dedication both from the organizers and the artists and the artists would not participate in events this large if they did not get a good response from the visitors.
