Arizona is in the midst of a renaissance, and one that could be the inspiration for a mural idea that has been suggested for years.
The mural concept, dubbed the Phoenix Trilogy, is being pitched as a way to honor the Phoenix Suns and their legacy, and has attracted a number of cities around the country, including Portland, Ore., and Los Angeles.
The idea is to hang the murals in the Phoenix Convention Center, and then paint over the walls and the sides of the arena.
The idea could be a way for the Suns to honor their legacy in Phoenix, and perhaps even in Los Angeles, but the mural concept could also be viewed as a reflection of the city’s current situation, where Phoenix is in a state of crisis, according to the concept art.
“There are a lot of people who are looking for a way out of this,” said Tom Cogan, a landscape architect and professor at the University of Arizona.
“There’s a lot that could change, and it could be interesting to see what happens in Phoenix.”
The city has a history of struggling with poverty and inequality, and the muras are an opportunity to show how the city is a beacon of hope, Cogan said.
The murals would be located in a part of the stadium where there’s already a mural depicting the Phoenix skyline.
The city also recently completed a new mural, a large portrait of the late basketball player Charles Barkley, in the same space.
Cogan said that the murall concept is a little far-fetched, and that it’s not as simple as painting a wall, but rather creating an elaborate mural that’s not the same as a mural that is.
“It would be really interesting to have a mural where they’re not painting it over, and just kind of painting it out,” he said.
“I think this is an opportunity for the city to be very visible.
It would be an opportunity in Phoenix to showcase a city that is growing and thriving.”
