Phoenix, Arizona

The Estria Foundation teamed up with community organizations; Black Mesa Water Coalition, Tonatierra, PUENTE, The Phoenix Revitalization Corporation, The Valley Youth Theater, and the Downtown Phoenix Partnership to host this mural dedicated to local water conditions. Lead by an amazing team of artists, including Jeff Slim, Kim Smith, Xochitl Enriquez, Angel Diaz, Averian Chee, and members of the Cyphers Center for Urban Art, they are using art as a tool to tell the story of the of the Phoenix watershed. This 2500 square foot mural is on the south side of the Valley Youth Theater on 1st Street and Fillmore.

The Phoenix #Water Writes mural depicts the journey that our water and energy take to get to us. The Navajo Reservation has 2 coal power plants that supply energy to Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. These power plants also push water uphill to the Central Arizona Project (CAP). Many of these communities where the water and electricity come from have health problems, high unemployment rate, no electricity, and no running water.
