To me, this sums up downtown Phoenix as a whole. Civic Space Park was an area I frequented while in college, and was always the best place to sip coffee, people watch, and breathe a little bit before my next class.
It sits in the middle of a concrete metropolis, and was always a place that I could come to collect my thoughts. Now that I'm graduated this will be one of the places I miss most. Not to worry though, I have a feeling this little park in the middle of the city will be here for many years to come.
The countdown to Best of Phoenix continues! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix. No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?
