The Grand Canyon State is home to many inspiring landmarks – from that corner in Winslow, Arizona, that the Eagles were standing on in “Take it Easy” to Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural proficiency that is the Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium.

And many great artists have inhabited the furthest reaches of this great state – from Paolo Soleri’s Arcosanti in Mayer, Ariz., to John Wayne’s 26 Bar Ranch in Eagar, Ariz.

So the question is: Why would one limit themselves to consuming the arts in only their hometown venues?

The next time you head out of town to play tourist – regardless of where you are from or where you’re heading – be sure to take on the role as an arts patron as well. In sampling local talent of neighboring communities, you will be supporting the people and organizations that bring the arts to these audiences.
