Downtown Tucson provides an ideal backdrop for bringing together arts patrons of all demographics and the creative force that is Fringe. Fringe doesn’t curate. Fringe restores the artist’s creative influence. Fringe is affordable. Fringe is unique. Fringe doesn’t preach. Fringe gives all the money back to the artist. Fringe is a laboratory for ideas. Fringe is community.
