ASU School Of Arts Opens New Downtown Phoenix Studios

About a mile east of the proposed Grant Park development, workers on Thursday were putting the finishing touches on another project, this one turning an old warehouse into studio space. The Arizona State University School of Art is moving some of its graduate students downtown. School and city officials are celebrating the grand opening Friday evening.

Michael Underhill is the interim dean of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, which houses the art school. He is excited to add to ASU’s presence in downtown Phoenix, although he notes the studios are about a mile and a half away from the school’s existing campus.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
