A new collection of iconic indoor murals depicting the past, present and imagined future of Phoenix will make its debut March 1.

The Phoenix Phabulous History Mural will be a featured installation at the Art d’Core Gala, taking place at Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix. The event is hosted by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Downtown Phoenix Inc. and Artlink Inc., and will spotlight the significant contribution of the arts in invigorating and adding “color” to our urban core.

Created by local artists with help from Phoenix historians, authors and storytellers, the initial collection of 12 murals portrays nine distinct Phoenix time periods, each featuring important milestones of community life, beginning with the ancient Hohokam civilization and continuing into the city’s future opportunities.
