Friday March 26 is the opening night of the newest exhibit at the Alwun House. It’s called light house, and will feature illuminated works by over 30 artists, and the gallery lights will stay out. You’re encouraged to show up in your on illuminated outfit, and there will be a prize for the best. There will also be performances, including a set by the dry river yacht club. Also Friday night, Smeeks is holding the first ever Caramelpalooza, where you’ll get to sample some of Phoenix’s best showing off their caramel creations.
This week on cenphotv, the alwun house ushers in spring, the downtown voices coalition meets, another sidewalk sale on roosevelt row, the aloha festival, and a discussion about ansel adams led by his former assistant.
[Source: Si Robins, Downtown Phoenix Journal] — I’ve been thinking about seeing beloved members of the Downtown community leave town recently, and it had me realizing the bonds that we create in our daily lives in Downtown Phoenix, whether they be direct or indirect. This weekend we celebrated Natalie Morris‘ departure at the Urban Grocery and Wine Bar with a food and wine affair that would make any neighborhood envious. While there, I realized how many of us see each other regularly in these parts, and it’s always disheartening when one of the flock leaves the nest.
The same was almost the case in this week’s Suns Spot post. As trivial as it may seem, Suns fans have been entertained at US Airways Center by Amar’e Stoudemire for seven years. When intense trade rumors reached a boiling point last week (despite 11th hour discussions, Stoudemire remained a Sun, to the delight of most Suns fans), Chris Coffel examined the mark Stoudemire’s entrepreneurship has impacted Phoenix and how it would change (with some hilarious would-be results). Luckily, we won’t be seeing Taylor Griffin’s OK BBQ anytime soon.

This week on CenPhoTV, the City of Phoenix buys a hotel for ASU, the State of Arizona announces a Centennial museum, Third Friday and Erotic Poetry, a light rail pub crawl, Vintage Vaudeville, Radiate Phoenix, a coffee potluck, and a citywide race.
[Source: Arizona State University] — Another major step was taken in the partnership between ASU and the City of Phoenix with the arrival of Eight/KAET-TV. Eight relocated its television signal to the all-new digital media center at Fillmore and Central in downtown Phoenix, after nearly 50 years at the ASU Tempe campus. The final move in December was a culmination of more than two years of planning, fundraising, equipment acquisitions, installation, and staff training.
The station’s signature public affairs programs “Horizon” and “Horizonte” began broadcasting from the new location last month. “Horizon” airs at 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and “Horizonte” airs at 7:30 p.m., each Thursday.
“Eight’s beginnings were humble, to say the least,” said Kelly McCullough, Eight’s general manager. “The first broadcast facility was a trailer on the Tempe campus at Arizona State University. We are now stewards of a state-of-the-art facility thanks to the support of the City of Phoenix, ASU and the many contributors to the Campaign for Arizona PBS.”
Eight’s content reaches far beyond the television signal. The award-winning programs chronicle the state’s history, culture, and landmarks, and offer special insight into the diverse communities. Eight’s public affairs shows encourage civic engagement with discussion and commentary from Arizona lawmakers and business leaders. And the Eight’s educational outreach projects offer instruction to students and professional development to educators throughout the state.
