Here's What's Happening DTPHX.org
The @FlinnFoundation elected another advocate to their Board of Directors!\n\nThe foundation, which supports bioscience, arts, culture, and civic leadership initiatives through various grants and fellowships, appointed Adam Goodman, the CEO of Goodmans Interior Structures (@Goodmansgoodstuff), to its board. \ud83d\udd2c \ud83c\udfa8\n \nGoodman's election is an extension of the foundation's focus: In 2023, he participated in their Arizona Center for Civic Leadership, a program that fosters the next generation of local leaders. The CEO also serves as a Flinn-Brown Fellow.\n\nFor three generations, Goodman's Interior Structures has remained family-operated, with a Goodman leading the company. While on the board, Goodman and others will be responsible for allocating funding for the foundation's signature grants.\n\nLearn more information about the recent election using the \ud83d\udd17 our in bio: \ud83d\udc46

We love the unique Downtown vibes of this photo captured by Zee Peralta (@zee__zzz)! \ud83d\ude0d \ud83d\udd25 \n\nHere's what we love: @Multistudio's Central Station redevelopment project continues to take shape in the background, while Civic Space Park is activated with a live screening (and scoring) of 'Black Panther,' hosted by @DowntownPhoenix. \n\nMeanwhile, @ArizonaStateUniversity's historic A. E. England Building and Janet Echelman's Her Secret Is Patience art installation convey what a dynamic hub the area is quickly becoming.\n\nFor context: Last Saturday, Downtown Phoenix organized the inaugural CAN I KICK IT? for
Did you know that the world's best place to see an intimate concert is in Phoenix?\n\nA roundup of the Top Music Venues by Billboard Magazine included The Rebel Lounge in Central Phoenix, which Member Stephen Chilton of @PsykoSteve Presents operates, as the world's Best Venue Under 500 Capacity. Since 2015, music fans have regularly packed into the 300-person capacity venue to watch the latest emerging artists. \n\nIn 2020, Chilton proved indispensable in advocating for concert venues during the Pandemic, eventually co-founding the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) as a result. \n\nWe're proud to have Psyko Steve Presents as a Member for these and other lasting contributions to our local arts & culture scene! \n\n\ud83d\udcf7 by Patrick Breen\/The Arizona Republic

To experience our local public artwork, start at @ValleyMetro's new light rail stations! \ud83d\ude84 \ud83c\udfa8 \n\nDuring the Northwest Extension Phase II design, Member DIG Studio (@digstudio.inc) led the process to shape how daily ridership experienced the new connectivity and public artwork. \n\nAt the Thelda Williams Transit Center in MetroCenter, the elevated station and lower plaza beneath the platform represent the firm's biggest contribution to the current expansion, with the winding pavement patterns of the plaza invoking a transit map. This strategic addition of desert trees and benches at the bus hub helps make it a comfortable place for all.\n\nTheir work also included coordinating the artwork integrated into the three new stations. Dig Studios describes the work as \"advancing the value of transit.\" \n\nWhen you ride the light rail, what's your favorite public art platform that Valley Metro has created?
