ARTELPHXFLYER (1)After the Spa opens May 6th, the ARTELPHX event soon after will bring in the arts and culture crowds, much like it did this past September. "ARTELPHX artists create site-specific art installations and performances that transform the Clarendon for three days. "ARTELPHX was inspired by art happenings in New York City, Marseilles and Tokyo," says Tara Sharpe, Director of Arts, Media, Community and Culture at the Clarendon. "ARTELPHX takes site specific art to the next level, elevating the concept from a few small spaces to an all surrounding experience." Over 20 talented artists showcase multi - media work during each session. ARTEL has invited Local First Arizona's Localist Members to it's VIP opening event May 15th - for more information, see the Localist Event Page here.

As May progresses, the temperatures will rise and if you are looking for a place to cool Cabanasoff, look no further than the Clarendon's Oasis Pool and Cabanas. The award winning pool features stylish seating in chaise lounges, pool beds, sofas, six outdoor cabanas (see cabana pricing here), V.I.P. indoor cabanas with 47? flat screens, 50 person Hydro Spa, and underwater speakers. Daily pool membership is $10 per person monday through Thursday and $25 per person Friday through Sunday -- did we mention membership includes bottled water, otter pops and VIP pool service from Gallo Blanco?
