Wet and Wild

It’s no secret water is key in the development of any city, but it's especially important in the desert. In Phoenix, the battle to save, conserve, and utilize water has shaped the city’s layout and culture. Ed Lebow, director of the city's Office of Arts & Culture, knows the impact of water on our daily lives and will discuss the subject from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, February 14, at Burton Barr Library, 1221 North Central Avenue.

Lebow’s discussion, “Following the Water: The History of Change in the Valley Landscape,” is part of the “Phoenix Icons: The Art of Our Historic Landmarks” lecture series and exhibition currently on view at The Gallery @ City Hall.
