Fun free and almost free things to do May 18-20 in Arizona

This Friday, May 18th from 6 – 9:30 pm is an event that is free and open to all high school students (ages 14-18).

Teen Night at Phoenix Art Museum is a celebration of art, creativity, and community organized for teens, by teens.

Betsy Schneider, the artist behind To Be Thirteen, will be in attendance along with some of the teens featured in the exhibition to share their experiences working on the project. The artist will also perform a short photography demo with the large-format film camera she used to make the portraits.

This is a teen-only event.

Parents can drop off teens at the Museum’s main entrance, and pick up no later than 9:30 pm.
