It presents an opportunity to share ideas and personal opinions, surprise each other, and discover the world through artists’ eyes. Start your adventure by picking up a Scavenger Hunt at Visitor Services to guide your journey through our collections. There is no need to know all about art – discover it together!

Special Installation: Visiones Teotihuacanes


The past is present in this collaboration with Phoenix-based artists Martín Moreno and Edgar 8Ahau Fernandez. Drawing inspiration from the exhibition Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire, Moreno and Fernandez created a mural that celebrates the rich history and creative force of the ancient Mesoamerican city. The second mural, created with Discount Tire Free Family Sunday participants, blends symbolism from Teotihuacan with the modern architecture of our home in the Valley of the Sun. This installation invites us to see the vibrant connections between the ancient Mexican metropolis and the people of Phoenix and reflect on our hopes for the future of our communities.  
“I believe that the power of art has the potential to heal our community and to reconnect us to our purpose of living a better life.” – Edgar 8Ahau Fernandez
 "I have devoted my professional life to the arts and promotion of public art. Celebrating my ancestors and humanity with the current demand of culturally relevant art locally and internationally. I am grateful to have played a small part in the movimento." – Martin Moreno 
We invite you to add your voice to this installation. What is your hope for your community and future generations of Phoenicians? Please share your vision using words, images, or symbols @phxart #phxartfamily #familiaphxart.

El pasado está presente en esta colaboración con los artistas con sede en Phoenix Martín Moreno y Edgar Fernández. Inspirándose en la exhibición Teotihuacan: Ciudad de Agua, Ciudad de Fuego, Moreno y Fernández crearon un mural que celebra la rica historia y la fuerza creativa de la antigua ciudad mesoamericana. El segundo mural, creado con los participantes de Discount Tire Free Family Sunday, combina el simbolismo de Teotihuacan con la arquitectura moderna y el paisaje de nuestro hogar en el Valle del Sol. Esta instalación nos invita a ver las vibrantes conexiones entre la antigua metrópolis mexicana y la gente de Phoenix, y a reflexionar sobre nuestras esperanzas para el futuro de nuestras comunidades.
"Yo creo que el poder del arte tiene el potencial de curar nuestra comunidad y reconectarnos con nuestro propósito de vivir una vida mejor". – Edgar 8Ahau Fernández.
