Public Art a Cornerstone of Phoenix Convention Center's Identityhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phoenix-convention-center/2848Phoenix Convention Center8/29/2023 5:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2848/Newsroom_ConventionCenter_002.jpgPublic Art a Cornerstone of Phoenix Convention Center's Identity<div class="ExternalClassCA4155F1B8354B6BB444EB8DEA785F85"><html> Since the opening of Phoenix Civic Plaza in 1972, art has been a crucial component of the facility. The Phoenix Convention Center’s robust public art display is composed of local, regional and national artists and a variety of mediums that can be seen throughout the facility.<br><br>This commitment to the arts is made possible through the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program. Carrie Brown, deputy arts and culture director with the City of Phoenix, said she and her team work to bring artists on board for the various capital improvement projects across the city. <br><br>“Bringing artists to the table, allowing them to have a voice, is so important,” Brown said. “It’s more than building a public facility or a utility. Bringing in artwork makes us uniquely Phoenix and speaks to who we are. And it shows that we value the arts.” <br><br>The Phoenix Convention Center & Venues has been steadfast in its commitment to public art. When the facility expanded in 2008, 10 new artworks were added to the existing collection​. Some of those pieces of art were integral to the design of the facility, like “Art is a Guaranty of Sanity” by Louise Bourgeois, that the West Building was constructed around it due to its size.  <br><br>​​“These pieces o​​​f art can make you pause for a second and take a break from the hustle and bustle when you are going from meeting to meeting at a convention,” Brown said. <br>​​“There’s an experience built in there. Having these works of art give people something to connect with when they are here. That’s what is memorable to people when they are visiting a new place.”<br><br><strong>​Phoenix​​’s commitment to public art</strong><br><br>The City’s Public Art Program goes beyond the Convention Center walls. The Public Art Program was established by the Phoenix City Council in 1986 through an ordinance that allocates one percent of the city’s annual Capita​​l Improvement Program to public art projects, Brown said. This means that o​ne penny from every Capital Improvement Program dollar used to build or improve City infrastructure like streets, parks, the airport, libraries, community centers, the Phoenix Convention Center & Venues and more, goes toward public art.​<br><br>The program is intended to foster collaboration between local government, artists, and other design professionals to create a ​​more beautiful and vibrant city, Brown said.  <br><br>“When we are looking at a n​ew piece of art for anywhere in the City, we are looking at the best way to affect the space,” Brown said. “We want a variety of projects and experiences for our visitors and residents.”  <br><br>The artists are selected vi​​a a panel that begins with an open call, known as a request for qualifications or RFQ, Brown said.  <br><br>“Our process allows us to get artists on board early so that all stakeholders can plan accordingly,” Brown said. “The understanding of​ the design and the facility is crucial.”  <br>​<br><strong>Phoenix Convention Center & Venue’s public art  </strong><br><br>When the facility expanded in 2008, the Phoenix Conventio​​​n Center had a $3.2 million public art budget stemming from three capital improvement program bonds. These works offer a variety of perspectives on life in Phoenix, the United States, and the world in the 21st century.<br><br>Brown said the importance of public ar​​t cannot be overstated, especially in spaces like the Convention Center. ​<br><br>“The things that are memorable for people are the ​​cultural things,” Brown said. “The art at the Convention Center is free to see and open to the public. Each one has its own unique perspective and makes the experience of visiting the Convention Center more memorable.”  <br><br>Brown said that every piece might not speak to everyone, and that’s​​ true of any work of art. But, she says, that’s not what matters.  <br><br>“What matters is that it connects with at least one person,” Brown said. “And these works of art, they do. It’s about the one person who walks by, pauses, and feels something.”<br><br><em>See more Phoenix Convention Center News on our </em><a href="https://www.phoenixconventioncenter.com/news" target="_blank"><em>website</em></a><em>​. </em> <br> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/conventioncenterNewsphoenix-convention-centerPCC
Convention Center Food Waste Gets New Life in Composthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phoenix-convention-center/2835Phoenix Convention Center8/16/2023 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2835/Newsroom_ConventionCenter_001.jpgConvention Center Food Waste Gets New Life in Compost<div class="ExternalClassC5E7A19C3114477A89F95591D81D92AB"><html> <br>​​​​​Between catering services, grab-and-go menu items, and the food-court style PHX Kitc​hens Downtown Food Hall, the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.phoenixconventioncenter.com/news">Phoenix Convention Center​</a> creates literal tons of food waste.<br> <br>Aventura, a subsidiary of Aramark, and the Convention Center are dedicated to being as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible. Leadership in both entities engaged with the City of Phoenix Public Works department back in 2017 to find solutions to diverting​ food waste. Since then, the Convention Center has turned tons of food waste into compost material. <br> <br>“We’ve developed a really great partnership,” said Lorizelda Stoeller, deputy public works director. “It’s awesome the Convention Center and Aventura are willing to try new things.”  <br><br>Through June 2023, the PCC has diverted 58.67 tons of food waste, according to Stoeller. <br> <br>Waste is collected three times a week at the kitchen dock and then the waste is put into a de-packager machine that separates non-organic material. From there, the waste is taken to the City of Phoenix-​owned facility at 27th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road for composting. There, all the food waste generated by the City of Phoenix is processed.  <br><br>Denali, a national company, is contracted to run the facility, Stoeller said. They take the compost, bag it up and sell it at big box stores and to local farms. The City of Phoenix parks have also found, and continue to find, use for the compost.  ​<br><br>“It all goes back into the community somehow,” Stoeller said.  <br><br>The Convention Center’s composting program was put on pause during the pandemic in 2020 an​d 2021, Stoeller said, but as the PCC geared up to host fan activities for Super Bowl LVII in February 2023 leadership reignited the program.  <br><br>The goal of Super Bowl LVII was to be a zero-waste event, Stoeller said. The Phoenix Convention Center during two weeks of fan activity in the building diverted 11 tons of food waste from City landfills to the composting center.  <br><br>“Now we are getting ready for the NCAA Men’s Final Four next year and there’s a big emphasis on making that a zero-waste event like we did for Super Bowl LVII,” Stoeller said.<br><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/conventioncenterNewsphoenix-convention-centerPCC

The original Phoenix Civic Plaza building also included the multi-purpose performing arts venue, Symphony Hall. Envisioned to serve as a center for cultural and theatrical performances, Symphony Hall complemented Phoenix Civic Plaza’s goal to grow the city’s convention and tourism business. Since that time, the Phoenix Civic Plaza and Symphony Hall have grown to become a driving force for downtown revitalization.</p><p> During the mid-80’s, the facility was expanded across Washington Street, and in the mid-90’s, underwent a $30 million renovation. After decades of residents and visitors enjoying a variety of events at the Civic Plaza, the facility underwent a $600 million expansion that tripled the size of the venues. The expansion project was completed in late 2008 and was reopened as the Phoenix Convention Center. The expanded convention center allowed Phoenix to host conventions, trade shows, and events on a national level. Since the completion of the expansion project, the Phoenix Convention Center has hosted approximately 2.7 million convention attendees representing 7.5 million hotel room nights and generates more than $300 million in direct visitor spending annually. <br><br> During this milestone year, the Phoenix Convention Center & Venues will celebrate the remarkable meetings and events it has hosted over the years, and the profound change in the downtown landscape since it was first established. With a dedicated team of 250+ employees, nearly one million square feet of rentable space, and a variety of essential amenities, the Phoenix Convention Center & Venues long-term commitment to excellence over the decades will be instrumental in its future of hosting innovative and exciting meetings and events.<br></p> <p> <br> </p> <p> <strong>About the Phoenix Convention Center:</strong> <br>The award-winning, GBAC STAR™ accredited, Phoenix Convention Center is one of the largest convention venues in the United States.

The convention group, American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), hosted nearly 1,000 attendees during its 2021 Annual Conference from June 18-20. </p><p> “It is great to see our Convention Center back in action and to welcome visitors back to downtown Phoenix,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Staff at the Phoenix Convention Center has gone to great lengths to ensure our guests will be safe and can protect their health while they experience all Phoenix has to offer. Travel and tourism are an important part of our economy. Plus, it’s great to see our city come back to life!” </p><p>The economic lift from meetings, conventions and exhibitions greatly impacts local communities and all of Arizona. The Greater Phoenix economy relies on visitor spending which funds essential government services that enrich our community. </p><p>“Meetings and conventions are a substantial economic contributor to the downtown Phoenix community and the Greater Phoenix area,” said Lorne Edwards, Senior Vice President of Convention Sales & Services at Visit Phoenix. “As the industry moves beyond online meetings and video calls, we’re ready to remind meeting attendees why in-person meetings in Phoenix offer more than just valuable networking time with peers, but also a chance to experience a new culture and flourishing community.” </p><p> Ann Battrell, MSDH and CEO of American Dental Hygienists’ Association, says “The American Dental Hygienists’ Association’s 2021 Annual Conference in Phoenix has been an incredible opportunity for the dental hygiene community to come together to learn, connect and grow for the first time in two years. We have been warmly welcomed and appreciate the city and Convention Center’s focus on the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. ADHA appreciates everyone’s partnership in making this conference memorable for all.” </p><p>While temporarily closed, the Phoenix Convention Center implemented new health and safety measures, which include enhanced cleaning, contactless transactions and joined some of the largest and most successful facilities in the United States by becoming the first public venue in Arizona to receive<strong> </strong><a href="https://gbac.issa.com/gbac-star-facility-accreditation/" target="_blank"><strong>GBAC STAR™</strong></a> accreditation. Recognized as the gold standard of safe venues, GBAC STAR™ provides third-party validation to ensure the implementation of rigorous protocols in response to biorisk situations. </p><p> “The COVID-19 pandemic limited our ability to host large gatherings for more than a year. During this period, and with the guidance and advice of healthcare experts, we have implemented strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols with our guests and staff’s health and safety as the top priority,” said 100 NORTH 3 RD STREET, PHOENIX, ARIZONA 85004 Phoenix Convention Center Director John Chan. “The GBAC STAR accreditation further strengthens our commitment to excellence as we welcome the return of conventions.” </p><p>Despite the 2020 shut down, the collective downtown partners booked 72+ conventions and a record number of delegates to Phoenix in future meeting years. From July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020 91 meetings were booked into the Phoenix Convention Center, which includes rebooked meetings following cancellations during the pandemic.
