La Memoria Vive, 2008

La Memoria Vive/Memory Lives On. Fabricated steel, cement block, and ceramic tile, 100’ x 15’ x 12’.

A public art streetscape located at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Phoenix, AZ. Designed (with extensive input from the neighborhood residents) to incorporate the oral and written histories of “Golden-gate” barrio, which was displaced due to the expansion of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.

“We were moved, the Golden-gaters, swept away carelessly, like tossing away old shoes.”
