Public Art for Phoenix Convention Center, $100,000
"Beach in Heaven"

I was selected to make a public art for the Phoenix Convention Center.  This piece shows the Mix culture of the city of Phoenix by the food cactus, which has, American, Mexican, Italian and Japanese Food on them.  The Fashion cactus shows many fashinable items from a hat to the shoes.  Phoenix is the 5th largest city in the US, so what you can get in NY, You can get in Phoenix, too.  Phoenix even have a mam made lake, and sprinklers blooming floweres everywhere.  It almost natural to feel the fish in the Cactus!!
