Artlink, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of connecting artists, businesses and the community, announced that Art Detour will return as a month-long celebration of the Arizona arts and culture community in March. The event will run from March 1 to 31, 2022, giving art patrons, collectors and art lovers a broader range of ways in which to engage with artists and destinations throughout the state.
Art Detour 34 will highlight a broad spectrum of art forms and integrated themes that include the visual, performing and culinary arts, fashion design, public art and more. Artlink invites artists, venues, businesses and organizations to register as an Artlink Articipant and join this amazing arts and culture celebration.
