​The Coronado Neighborhood Streetscape includes a fence designed by artist Joan Waters that runs the length of Virginia Street between North High School and the Coronado Neighborhood.  The fence, which is both durable and low-maintenance, elegantly creates a sense of movement with an undulating top. The design includes imagery from the neighborhood, which speaks to the historic nature of the Coronado area.   Working with the Street Transportation Department, the artist chose to focus on the architectural features within the Coronado neighborhood as well as the natural features within the area, including the many trees and cacti.  The completed fence, which spans 880 feet, was fabricated locally.  The Coronado Fence project was funded through Street Transportation Percent for Art Funds and managed by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program​.​
