City leaders invited artists in 1960 to submit concepts that were put on display at the Phoenix Public Library, and citizens voted for their favorite design. Coze's design was selected and his mural debuted when Terminal 2 opened in 1962.</div><br>The mural resided in Terminal 2 and remained in its central location over the main hall after the terminal closed and was decommissioned in early 2020. The mural had already been designated for relocation, which took place from March to fall 2021, when it was installed at the Rental Car Center.<br><br>“The history represented in this mural—from the imagery of Hohokam symbols, modern tribes and Latino heritage to mining and technology depictions—speaks to each one of us," Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said. “We are all represented in this work of art." <br><br>The mural represents Phoenix's past, present and future. Besides paint media, 52 different materials, including glass and ceramic mosaic tiles, soil and sand from around the state, plastics, aluminum and gemstones, are used in the mural construction.<br><div style="text-align:left;"><img style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:194px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Coze%20Mural%20unveiling%202.JPG" /></div><div style="text-align:left;">Two members of the Phoenix City Council agreed that “<em>The Phoenix</em>" is a fitting showcase for travelers of the city's rich diversity and heritage.</div><br>“Paul Coze's mural highlights the rich diversity of our city," said Councilwoman Betty Guardado, District 5. “At its new location, visitors will not only see the history of the city, but also a reflection of the resiliency of the men and women that make Phoenix what it is today." <br><br>“Paul Coze's mural has depicted Phoenix's rich and diverse history and landscape to travelers and residents for nearly 60 years," said Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari, District 7. “I am thrilled that visitors to our great city will continue to experience this important piece of art." <br><br>“<em>The Phoenix</em>" can be viewed on the southwest corner of the central escalator lobby in the Rental Car Center. It will be even easier to access by mid-2022, when the PHX Sky Train® extension to the Rental Car Center opens to the public.<br><br><strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®</strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.
