Located at McKinley & 3rd St.

The Estria Foundation is a non-profit that seeks to “create social change through the creation of art” on a global a scale. In collaboration with the Black Mesa Water Coalition, they organized this mural in downtown Phoenix as part of “Water Writes”, a series of 10 murals in major cities across the world that shed light on social and environmental issues. Dozens of artists came together to complete the wall in less than two weeks with help from friends, family, and children.

The mural depicts the stark differences of what energy consumption/water usage means for those of us living in the Valley and for Indigenous communities to the North. On the left, images of coal mining operations and refineries set a backdrop to the golf courses and demanding lifestyle that urban residents enjoy, but that the environment and many communities pay dearly for. On the right hand side are more hopeful pleas for what the future could look like– wind farms, solar panels, and native foods are intertwined in urban and rural settings.

For more on how water usage in Arizona disproportionally effects Native communities, read a previous interview with Jules Badoni here.

Artists involved include Angel Diaz, Jeff Slim, Kim Smith, Edgar Fernandez, Jules Badoni, Sinek, Ramon Aguirre, Averian Chee, Lalo Cota, and more. Other organizations involved include PUENTE, TonatierraPhoenix Revitalization Corporation, and the Downtown Phoenix Partnership.

 People who choose to promote 1912 are aiding in the continual creative formation of Arizona’s perception, integrity and character. By supporting the project, you’re supporting growth. Just wear the t-shirt with pride and spread the word about what makes Arizona special. Promote the small things that others may not see and generate a sense of excitement about being part of what makes up Arizona. By choosing to wear and identify with 1912, you choose to identify with and support Arizona’s creativity, history, symbolism, and identity.

William LeGoullon of The 1912 Project has released  “Heat No. 1“, his fifteenth edition of Arizona-inspired t-shirts. Since only 25 of the limited-editions shirts are printed, you’ll want to stay up to date on the releases at the website, where you can also view previous editions and read a bio on the author/project. This edition is also available at Francis Boutique in Phoenix.
