The 145-foot-tall netlike aerial sculpture at the center of Civic Space Park moves with the wind, creating what artist Janet Echelman calls “shadow drawings.” It’s especially captivating at night, when lit by a changing array of colors. Opened in 2009, this award-winning park has helped spur the redevelopment of downtown Phoenix, luring folks with food trucks, concerts, green lawns, and easy access to bus and light-rail service. The splash fountain is popular on scorching days, and the park takes advantage of all that sunshine, generating energy from solar power.
