Visitors and art enthusiasts can stroll along the shaded Arizona Canal waterfront while enjoying fine art exhibits and artist demonstrations, a fresh action culinary experience at Bistro on the Canal, and live entertainment during SlopeArts Art on the Canal.
A juried art show will feature some of the valley’s emerging, established, and up and coming artists in different art forms. Current students from ASU’s Herberger Institute School of Art, in collaboration with ASU alumni artists, will also host various demonstrations and collaborative activities.
You can relax, listen to music, and enjoy delicious food at the shaded Bistro on the Canal. Nearby dining and drinking establishments will work together to share their culinary artistry, offering locally inspired flavors and cuisine utilizing an Italian artisan wood fire oven. Fresh brewed coffee and cappuccino and bakery treats will be available as well. People are also welcome to walk, bike or drive north on Central Avenue where several nearby dining and drinking establishments will be offering a variety of food and drink specials. From burgers to beers, Latin fusion to barbeque, coffee to sweets, it’s available in the heart of Sunnyslope.
For animal lovers, local artist, James Sanders, will be creating black-and-white sketches of festival-goers’ pets live, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the homeless pets of the Arizona Humane Society. Pets of all shapes and sizes are welcome, or guests may bring a favorite photo of their loyal companion. The Arizona Humane Society will be there as well, with their Waggin’ Wheels mobile pet adoption vehicle and the valley’s cutest adoptable pets from 4-8 pm., just across Central Avenue from Art on the Canal, just south of Timo Wine Bar.
It’s free and open to all ages, and your pets. Check out SlopeArts.org for more.
