Your friendly neighborhood art gallery 

Megan Leslie has put her office walls to good use and she wants you to check it out.

You may not have realized, but your MP's office doubles as an art gallery, and drop-ins are welcome. Megan Leslie came up with the idea just after she was elected: "I thought, what are ways that I can use my office to support local community?" After consulting local curators, one piece of advice pushed the project along: If you have walls and a hammer and nails, then you have a gallery. For over a year a volunteer committee has lined up a new show every five months, sticking with a mission of diversity in the way of culture, ethnicity, media, geography and experience. The result has been a broad range of works, from the likes of Paul Maher to the youth art that currently hangs. The gallery's fifth exhibit juxtaposes Peaces of Me, drawings collected from students and street youth in Kabul, and Rush Hour, a self-reflective mural created by members of Phoenix Youth Programs. –Allison Saunders
