Mayor Greg Stanton, stressed the importance of artists in bringing downtown Phoenix the success it experiences today. “Art is a gift,” Stanton said. “We wouldn’t have the momentum that we have, the other good things we have, without the artists.” He praised artists for helping make downtown what it is today and seeing potential in areas others did not, including himself. “Anytime you see me at a groundbreaking for some new development, be clear: I’m thinking about the artists that help find the beautiful nooks and crannies in our town … you are our eyes and ears. As we look at pioneers Alwun House — Kim Moody (Founder 1971) and Dana Johnson” “You were here first, and everything else we’ve done is on your shoulders.” Alwun House appreciates Mayor Stanton’s inclusion of artist and gallery owners in inter-departmental city planning.
“I love this place! And fell in love with The Alwun House back when I was in the 7th grade. My first piece was sold here. It was a still life done w pastels entered by Mrs. Wilnow, my art teacher. Years later my son Victor Solis while still in elementary school, also had his art exhibited and proudly sold 5 pieces of art. He is now 16 and a sophomore at North. Proud to say we are artists at heart. Thank you Alwun House for the beautiful memories and the opportunities given.”
