About this Event
Join us for our first in a series of Artists Talks about four new public art projects in the City of Phoenix. Jody Pinto will discuss the design and fabrication of the newly dedicated Rio del Rey pedestrian bridge with her collaborating architect Keith Crawford and Greg Brockman, of Magnum Companies, which fabricated the bridge’s unique cladding and other features. The 400-foot span over a new Phoenix freeway section created a community landmark and a safe route to schools for area children and families!
