"Neon AZ" Art Exhibit
The FOUND:RE Phoenix launches its latest art gallery exhibit in collaboration with downtown’s First Friday art walk on April 6. The exhibit, titled “Neon AZ,” features Marshall Shore (otherwise known as the Hip Historian) and works from photographer Caprice White of Jet Set Imagery that pays homage to the iconic neon signage, which plays a part of Arizona and the Southwest’s history. As part of the Arizona Vintage Sign Coalition, Marshall Shore is excited about documenting, preserving, and sharing a passion for neon. He says, “Neon tells a story about a specific period of time. Its heyday was a boom time in the Southwest and Arizona, and neon tubes are like thread in that they create a fabric for daily lives. Iconic signs that we pass by that anchor us to our past and where we came from.” Caprice White has a shared passion for historical vintage neon and the preservation of mid-century art and architecture. In her inaugural exhibit at the FOUND:RE she shares her love affair with the state of Arizona and its beautiful and historical vintage neon. The exhibit kicks off Friday April 6, 2018 with an opening night artists’ reception from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Community Event, Class/Workshop
"The Vision of Karma Yoga - The Art and Science of Action" with Mr. Arun Sehra
An Introduction to Karma Yoga - The Art and Science of Action. To know our true nature, the first step is to purify our mind, thereby freeing our mind of bondage created by our repeated actions (karma) and thoughts. The trick is to learn to perform actions in such a way that these actions do not create impressions in our mind. These impressions are the cause of our tendencies, our bondage – they control our mind and our life. Interfaith is located in the Paragon Business Center just West of Stapley, on the NW corner of Solomon and Baseline. Look for suite 102 on the West side of the building.
