Phoenix history resources

Downtown Phoenix, Arizona has transformed into an exciting, vibrant destination — a great place to live, work, and enjoy.  Community leaders have long recognized that it takes a combination of large venues, small wonders, and historic places to create an exciting downtown.

Phoenix Phabulous Experience™ was founded in 2013 as a 16-piece indoor mural and storytelling program. Our murals and programs have activated more than 30 grand civic spaces including galleries and historic venues.
