About

Phoenix Mural Project is the most comprehensive digital archive of the city’s ephemeral and always-evolving world of muralism. Street Art around the world has gained in popularity and social acceptance over the past decade. While Phoenix has had an active mural-painting scene for many years, it has never been thoroughly documented or studied. Indeed, outside Arizona, Phoenix mostly goes unnoticed as a meaningful hub of arts and culture production. Perhaps due to this isolation, local artists have developed a visual language that sets their work apart from other globally recognized “art cities.” With the stories, images, and tools provided through Phoenix Mural Project, the city’s creative culture has potential to gain visibility and influence much farther afield.
