“[The 26 Blocks exhibit is] a must-see and a great model for other cities."
"Paying homage to his beloved city in 2010, Joey Robert Parks paired 26 local photographers with 26 local writers and assigned each team to a randomly-selected block in downtown Phoenix. Their mission was to capture the past, present or imagined future of that block in one photograph and one piece of commentary, with renowned local sculptor Rafael Navarro assigned to turning small wood cubes into 26 sculptures to represent them all. The wildly popular “26 Blocks,” toured for over a year, produced an iPad app, and has now become its own gallery in the lower lobby of the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel, where it’s free to the public 24/7." The exhibit is open 365 days a year. Mr. Parks gives free tours every two weeks. See the website link above for days/time.
