7th Avenue Streetscape

2019 Crescordia Award Recipient

The 7th Avenue Streetscape is a rotating public art exhibition comprised of six large existing panels that regularly feature local Phoenix artwork. As part of the Phoenix Office of Arts + Culture Public Art Program, and in collaboration with the Poet Laureate and Public Works department, six poems were selected to be displayed as the latest streetscape exhibition. Six local designers were paired with the designated poets to create dynamic illustrations for each poem. The narratives focus on sustainability to increase public awareness for reuse, recycling and social consciousness. The resulting exhibit creates an urban gallery with commentary on sustainability through race, climate and the local environment.
