Finding art in Fountain Hills

Plenty of folks will be heading to Fountain Hills for this weekend’s Fountain Hills Great Fair, taking place Feb. 24-26 from 10am to 5pm. But the town also offers all sorts of arts experiences you can enjoy throughout the year.

I headed to Fountain Hills recently to check out an area full of public art works that it’s easy to explore with or without the help of a Fountain Hills Art Walk map you’ll find on the town’s website.

Many are located near a library, museum and community center, as well as the town’s Veterans Memorial. The area is also full of parks, making it a fun place for family picnics.

The town is home to Fountain Hills Theater, which performs “Crazy for You” Feb. 24-March 11. Their youth theater performs “Chapters: A Primer on Drug Awareness,” a work that blends student contributions with a play written by FHYT artistic director Ross Collins, March 16-April 1.

Fountain Hills also has a River of Time Museum — which features exhibits on geology and geology — plus information on diverse groups of people who have lived and worked in this region of the Southwest.
