Just the Facts, Please… SEPT | 8 | 2010
It is the Awards time again. We will back at the Phoenix Art Museum on Saturday, September 25th. We completed the last of our juries last week, so we are excited for the event!

The early bird discount is this Friday. The price will go from $85 per person to $100 per person.
