In 2009, the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture's Public Art Program commissioned Bryon Darby, an Arizona artist, to tell the story of water through photography to enhance the educational efforts of the Phoenix Water Services Department. Darby researched the delivery and treatment systems that make water available to residents in the desert. The resulting images, currently on display at the Shemer Art Center, offer views of the canals, dams, canyons and water treatment plants.

The photographs are on display through July 27 at the Shemer Art Center and Museum, 5005 E. Camelback Road. After the exhibit closes in July, the photographs will be moved to permanent display locations at the city's Water Service centers.

For more information on the project, call (602) 495-0893. To learn more about Phoenix's public art programs, visit phoenix.gov/arts.
