Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

These sand cast panels were originally part of a mural on the side of a retail store that was torn down years ago. The panels were preserved and placed at the Biltmore Fashion Park Shopping Center so they could continue to be enjoyed. I’m at this shopping center quite often and I just saw these Monday evening. I don’t think they’ve put them in a place prominent enough for many people to enjoy them. In fact, I doubt many people have seen them at all. The artwork dates from 1963 and the artist is John Smith.
