La Memoria Vive

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.”
