​Employing Tilography, the mural style that has become the hallmark of Mr. Farley’s work, this large-scale art is comprised of ceramic panels that are glazed with evocative photography. In its entirety, the overall mural is pieced together with ten three-foot by ten-foot panels. The images on the wall portray diverse individual shaking hands in welcoming gestures of congratulations, assistance, community and prosperity. One panel is a “handshake” between two of the first Phoenix Convention Center employees, both now retired after 35 years of service. ​
