Launch Party Mesa Arts Center May 1


If you’re in the Phoenix area, we hope you will join us for our Launch of Issue 13 on Thursday May 1 from 6-8pm at Mesa Arts Center, Contemporary Arts Museum.

The first hour will include cake and a tour of the museum. The second hour will be a program including a reading by SR Issue 13 contributor Melissa Pritchard and presentations from our student interns on their favorite work from the issue.

Issue 9 Launch Party

Next Friday, April 6th Superstition Review will be hosting a party to celebrate the launch of Issue 9 at Art Intersection in downtown Gilbert. We are proud to display the outstanding work from the 63 contributors for Issue 9. Our student editors will present their favorite pieces. Local artists Carolyn Lavender, Monica Alissa Martinez and Constance McBride will also give presentations on their art that appears in Issue 9.

We couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting for the party than Art Intersection’s gallery, currently featuring photography from their exhibit “Art & the Dark Room.”

We’ll be featuring hors-d’oeuvres provided by local organic restaurant Pomegranate Café and cake pops from Tempe bakery Mind Over Batter.

If you’re hungry before or after the party, there are several great options next door: Romeo’s Euro Cafe, Joe’s Real BBQ, Liberty Market, and Postino Winecafe.

Come join us for a fun evening of literature and art in the Gilbert Heritage District to celebrate the release of our Issue 9.
