Valley Cities Invite the Public to Celebrate Diversity through Unity ArtWalkhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/equal-opportunity/276Equal Opportunity12/17/2020 10:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/276/Newsroom_EOD_018.jpgValley Cities Invite the Public to Celebrate Diversity through Unity ArtWalk<div class="ExternalClassFC76C167C2FA4203B875499D59F85567"><html> <p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>Each January, residents from the cities and towns of Chandler, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale gather at Tempe Town Lake to celebrate diversity and culture during the annual Regional Unity Walk. While it's still not safe to gather in large groups, the need for unity is greater than ever.</p> <p>In honor of the 18th year of the Regional Unity event, these Valley cities are coming together to host a “Unity ArtWalk: A Visual Journey of Diversity, Culture and Equity" from Jan. 5-31, 2021. Each city has compiled a list of signature art pieces, including murals, photos, performances and sculptures for the community to experience. The majority of the featured art is accessible without going indoors, so it's a safe activity to enjoy as a family outing, date night or even to escape your neighborhood to explore a nearby city.</p> <p>A link is available to view a <a href="https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/06a7d7600b1747f7a80d7bc248d7c89c" target="_blank">map</a> of the selected ArtWalk destinations. The <a href="https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/06a7d7600b1747f7a80d7bc248d7c89c" target="_blank">map</a> features information about each piece, including the artists.</p> <p>While residents are out on the town enjoying the ArtWalk, each city's Diversity Office has compiled a list of recommended restaurants (with carryout services available) nearby that are owned by People of Color. During this time, it's important to support local businesses. Be sure to try a different eatery and explore a new experience for your taste buds, too.</p> <p>To learn more about diversity initiatives in each of the participating cities and towns, or additional information on the upcoming Unity ArtWalk, visit the following websites: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.phoenix.gov/eod"><span lang="EN"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0066cc">phoenix.gov/eod</font></span></span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://chandleraz.gov/UnityArtWalk"><span lang="EN">chandleraz.gov/UnityArtWalk</span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.gilbertaz.gov/communityresources"><span lang="EN">gilbertaz.gov/communityresources</span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.guadalupeaz.org/"><span lang="EN">guadalupeaz.org</span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.mesaaz.gov/unitywalk"><span lang="EN">mesaaz.gov/UnityWalk</span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://tempe.gov/unitywalk"><span lang="EN">tempe.gov/UnityWalk</span></a> or <a target="_blank" href="https://tempe.gov/diversity"><span lang="EN">tempe.gov/diversity</span></a>, <a target="_blank" href="http://scottsdaleaz.gov/diversity"><span lang="EN">scottsdaleaz.gov/diversity</span></a> and <a href="https://valleymetro.org/about/artsline" target="_blank">valleymetro.org/about/artsline</a>.</p><p><strong>Phoenix's cultural art destinations include </strong><strong>(view </strong><a href="https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/06a7d7600b1747f7a80d7bc248d7c89c" target="_blank"><strong>map</strong></a><strong>):</strong></p><ul><li><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><strong>Murals</strong><br>Out Shine - South of downtown in Grant Park Neighborhood<br>Cultivating Unity - Lionetti Hair Clipper Service building</li></ul><ul><li><strong>Public Art</strong><br>Peace - Eastlake Park<br>Waterworks at Arizona Falls - AZ Canal and 58th Street<br>Passage - Pueblo Grande Museum<br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>Ponderosa Stables - South Mountain Park<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br>The Zanjero's Line - Highline Canal<br>Mountain Pass Bridge - Nisbet Road and SR-51<br>Grasshopper Bridge - Moon Valley Park<br>Cesar Chavez Plaza - Cesar Chavez Commemorative Park<br>Passages - South Mountain Community College<br>Mr. Potato Head Rises over Phoenix - Encanto Park<br>Ed Pastor Bridge - Isaac Middle School<br>Isaac Streetscape - McDowell Road from 32nd to 35th avenues<br>McDowell Gateway - McDowell Road, between 16 and 17th streets<br>Magic Carpet - Camelback Road at 25th Street<br>A Path for Water - 6th Street and Butler Avenue<br>Sunny - Hatcher Road, from Central Avenue to Third Street<br>Dunlap Ave Tree Guards - Dunlap Avenue from Central Avenue to 7th Street<br>A Time Machine Called Tinaja - 73rd Avenue and Crittenden Lane<br>Watermark - 55th Avenue and Edgemont Avenue<br>Her Secret is Patience - Civic Space Park<br>Little Canyon Trail - 31st Avenue between Camelback Road and Missouri Avenue<br>Color Box - Phoenix Art Museum<br>The Earth Dreaming - Phoenix Convention Center North Building<br>Layering of Worlds - Herberger Center for the Arts<br>Four Corners - Neighborhood Resource Center</li></ul><p>To learn more about the city of Phoenix Public Art Program, visit <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><a target="_blank" href="http://www.phoenix.gov/arts/publicart">phoenix.gov/arts/publicart</a>.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/eodNewsequal-opportunityGraphic of Regional Unity ArtWalkEOD#UnityArtWalk #DiversityUnity ArtWalk, diversityAlejandro Montiel602-531-7987602-534-3443alejandro.montiel@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/9/Alejandro_Montiel_Cordova.jpgPHXEqualOpprty

The updated guidance is due to a substantial increase in COVID-19 cases, particularly from the Delta variant and in communities across the country with low vaccination rates. <br><br>Maricopa County has shown a steady increase in the virus in recent weeks and current community spread bench​marks show the positivity rate remains in the high transmission category. The vaccination rate in Maricopa County is lagging the national average which is contributing to these benchmarks.<br><br>In May, the Phoenix City Council voted in favor of an '<a target="_blank" href="https://apps-secure.phoenix.gov/PublicRecordsSearch/Home/RenderPDF/?id=yG924qJeo60JqpsGuMkHdi7AVOsRkVnukmKR+1XiqtU=">Amended Declaration of the Phoenix City Council Regarding Face Coverings'</a> to automatically adjust mask policies in accordance with current CDC guidance.<br><br>The Declaration specific notes that businesses may continue to set policies regarding face coverings for their employees and customers.  The policy announced today only impacts city facilities.  Businesses remain free to determine their own rules surrounding masking requirements.<br><br>City leaders will continue to monitor CDC guidance as well as local data to determine future policies surrounding COVID protocols. <br><br>Patrons at Sky Harbor Airport and all riders of public transit are required to wear masks as part of the Federal mask mandate.<br><br>The city of Phoenix urges eligible residents to get the COVID-19 vaccination. <a target="_blank" href="https://www.maricopa.gov/5709/Take-Care?gclid=CjwKCAjwgISIBhBfEiwALE19SVSvLrmzozBwW-ic7JkCIIt9pu9GpYX4rhhfv9PBdA4Gl5bBGLCciBoCYRsQAvD_BwE">Maricopa County Public Health</a> has information on vaccination sites across Phoenix, including free options for obtaining the COVID-19 vaccination. <br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNews
