Bookmans stores across the state have hosted a series of free events for the art enthusiasts in our communities this March. For Bookmans Flagstaff, no events were more exciting than the series of free concerts brought to you by Flagstaff Arts Council (FAC). A month-long celebration of art, music and creativity, All Things Art highlighted the talented young musicians in northern Arizona and created an empowering space for our community’s youth to perform and create in front of their friends and family. But this isn’t the only opportunity for budding artist to create. All Things Art in Flagstaff takes the form of concerts and classes that take place through out the year at Bookmans as well as throughout Flagstaff. Today we highlight the amazing organizations and businesses that encourage creativity and celebrate art in Northern Arizona.
