Yesterday I had a post about a gate that was created by two artists. One of those artists, Michael Maglich also created another art project located in downtown Phoenix. It's a series of plaques depicting Bola Ties, called Arizona Bolas.
This one is called High Heel Bola.
Since the Bola Tie is the official neck ware of Arizona (really, we have an official neck ware), Maglich created a series of 59 bola tie plaques as part of the art project for the Phoenix Convention Center.
This one is named Roller Bola. Those are the rollers you see on chairs and carts.
Each tie represents either an industry that might be found at the convention center or something from Arizona history or our flora and fauna.
This one is Brush Bola.
Here is one of my favorites, Corkscrew Bola.
These all used to be displayed around the Convention Center and now they have been split between the center and a light rail stop nearby.
