“Veiled Mountain” combines art and engineering to fulfill a community’s desire to enhance the appearance and security of a neighborhood water facility, which occupies a site along a route passed by many bicyclists, walkers, joggers, and motorists. The team of artist Kevin Berry, engineers with Brown & Caldwell worked closely with community residents to transform the facility into a place that suits its scenic desert surroundings.

 

The artist’s concept for the curved steel shade canopies mirrors the sweeping horizon line of mountains south of the project. The purplish lava rock of the gabion security walls and the rusted finish of the fence staves and canopies harmonize with the red-rock beauty of the surrounding hills. The artist hand-forged the security fence’s five hundred pickets out of angle iron and worked with the engineering and construction team to incorporate them into the wall. The project is part of a partnership between the Phoenix Water Services Department and Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program to improve the design of neighborhood water facilities citywide.
