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

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.
