Phoenix's status as a tear-down city has made headlines of late, thanks to the narrowly escaped demo threats a Frank Lloyd Wright home faced from a dollar-hungry developer and the destruction of a pair of historic hotels for Phoenix Suns parking spaces. History loses to convenience and newness more than we care to admit.
Thankfully, the smash-up spirit hasn't succeeded in reducing to rubble all of this city's history. See the evidence in “Phoenix Icons: The Art of Our Historic Landmarks,” a photography exhibition that includes shots of such notable structures as W.A. Sarmiento's Financial Center, Lescher and Mahoney's Orpheum Theatre and Hanny's, and Tovrea Castle.
Fri., Oct. 5, 6-10 p.m.; Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through March 29, 2012
