FORTuitous: Family Fort Building
Downtown artist and mom Chris Pruitt invites you to this free, family-friendly event where children, young, and not so young, are encouraged to make art and make forts. Families are encouraged to bring their best fort-making materials, supplies, and skills. 

This fourth annual event originated because of the recovery from a concussion. Chris tells what happened to her daughter Eva: “When Eva was 9, she got a concussion. For her recovery: no TV, no reading, no movies, no iPad, no video games, no bright lights. Her parents needed to find activities she could do while she recovered. Since parents Chris and Michael Pruitt are both artists, they encouraged her to make artwork. Eye Lounge Gallery had a project room that was open so Eva and her family collaborated on an idea for a show. Her mom wanted to create some sort of bubble wrap, padded environment for her… soft with dim lights and a feeling of safety. Eva came up with the idea to build a fort, which they did and had so much fun doing.”

Now the entire Pruitt family wants to build forts and draw with anyone who wants to join them on February 11.

Roosevelt Row Temporary Street Art Activations
Design RePublic is delighted to celebrate Roosevelt Row, one of our favorite places in Phoenix! Working from our design toolbox on wheels, The Mobile _____ Studio, we will host a workshop and share our design and stencil-making processes.

You can make your own stencil and use onsite or take it home. Your new stencils can be used outdoors or inside to celebrate and beautify landscapes all over the Valley.* Near The Mobile Studio, we will have installed a set of mandala designs made to celebrate exploration. Please feel free to photograph and share on social media the stencils we have onsite and the ones you make for use at home .
