Competitive And Creative Edge Of Phoenix Art 

Phoenix art combines a creative and competitive spirit. Phoenix makes a unique effort to integrate the arts in all aspects of its life and its people via an initiative called the Phoenix Community Alliance (PCA). Phoenix considers art as a means of social and entrepreneurial opportunity. The top Phoenix Art Museums, Galleries and Schools sponsor and support art events like exhibitions and workshops to inculcate the value of art in the city.
