​The North 32nd Street Public Art project was designed to enhance 30 light poles along the east side of North 32nd Street, between Shea Blvd. and Bell Rd. This project was developed as part of the North 32ndStreet Corridor Community Visioning effort. The work will be fabricated in aluminum and self-sealing Corten steel, and feature silhouettes of hands traced by community residents. To create her design, Arizona artist Ann Morton worked with residents to collect more than 1,300 hand prints. The tracings were converted into digitized images and sorted by size to create templates used to fabricate the artwork in steel. The clusters of hands will spiral approximately 11 feet up the poles, from a height of 11 feet to 22 feet. The light poles along the east side of the street were selected because they are city-owned. Poles along the west side of the street are owned by Arizona Public Service. This project is supported with percent-for-art funds from the Street Transportation Capital Improvement Program.
