Phoenix Magazine Winner - Best of Valley Unconventional Art Space

Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art Shipping Containers

One of the more exciting players in Downtown's art scene — now emerging from gangly adolescence into something akin to your cool cousin who makes her own clothes — is the non-profit Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art. phICA hosts artist residencies, promotes art incubation and community engagement and education, and the fruits of the organization's labor are borne out in its shipping containers on Roosevelt Row. These unconventional spaces host compelling, thematically challenging shows from local artists and allow emerging curators to carry out their budding visions. 408 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix,
