Let's Talk Heat Booklet

The City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture and Arizona State University's Urban Climate Research Center partnered to produce the sunBLOCK public art projects. The projects, that were partially funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, were created as part of a campaign to promote awareness about heat and sun safety. SunBLOCK included the production of an educational booklet, Let's Talk Heat. The booklet provides information about urban and extreme heat, health risks, and strategies to cool the city and keep people safe.
