"That's what this piece is about," says Tempe artist Melissa Martinez. "I went from having one of the worst times of my life to having one of the best."


The Tempe-based artist just finished installing her latest public work titled,  Why Should I Be So Sad?  at the  Scottsdale Belle Art Tower,  a main entrance into the  Scottsdale Civic Center Mall. The piece, she says, was originally inspired by an emotionally draining time about a year ago, when three of her family members faced serious health issues.
