Phoenix: You Have To See This!

Phoenix: You Have To See This!

Heading up to the Valley of the Sun this month for the big game … or the big concert?

You won’t be alone. Many Tucsonans are driving or shuttling to attend some of the hottest events in the Phoenix area. The MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks will frequently command home field advantage in June, with games against the New York Mets (June 1 and 2); Los Angeles Dodgers (June 3-5 and June 24-26); Colorado Rockies (June 18-20); and San Francisco Giants (June 21-23).

A short stroll away, the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury will light up the “Purple Palace” (aka Talking Stick Resort Arena) with games against the Los Angeles Sparks (June 14 and June 23); and Indiana Fever (June 28). Both the Dbacks and the Mercury have won championships in past years and are followed by diehard fans from one end of the Grand Canyon State to the other.

Although the Musical Instrument Museum attracts numerous visitors just for its fascinating displays of unique, iconic and often rare music-making devices, the MIM also is well known as a great, intimate concert venue. Among the artists taking the stage this first month of summer are: Philly jazz multi-instrumentalist Joey DeFrancesco (June 5); sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar (June 15); and singersongwriter Rickie Lee Jones (June 26).

If visual art is more your scene, you won’t want to miss the exhibits at the Phoenix Art Museum. Ending June 9 is a collaboration with Tucson’s Center for Creative Photography titled, Mexican Photographers, Mexican Views, with more than 60 photos taken during the 20th century of a wide variety of subjects. Through Aug. 25, the show Early American Modernism: The Decade of the Armory Show will be on display. Artists represented include Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Bowen Davies, Stuart Davis, and others. While there, take the time to view the museum’s special installation Philip C. Curtis and the Landscapes of Arizona, up through Nov. 15, 2020. Curtis captured the beauty of our environment while casting it in a nearly mythological light.
