“Alwun House Foundation stands as an exemplary model of engaging the power of art to transform lives and transform community. For more than 40 years, the Alwun House foundation has created opportunities for artists, and served as a pivotal beacon in the Garfield community and as a foundation for the downtown Phoenix arts scene. Their work extends across artistic and cultural boundaries, and brings diverse audiences, community members and artists together. Without the pioneering work of Alwun House, much of what is taken for granted in the vibrancy and success of downtown’s flourishing arts community would not have been possible.” Governor’s Arts Award, 2013
This unique visionary sustainable park engages community connectivity, nurtures cultural inclusiveness, enriches creative urban life experience - and imaginatively built on a Foundation of four decades of leadership pioneering downtown’s arts community, and guiding historic Garfield neighborhood revitalization.
Beyond a “temporary” Infill Park, our multipurpose project has already received unanimous zoning approvals and neighborhood support. Envision green Sonoran landscape, community gardens, shaded open space for downtown community gatherings, art installations, performances, workshops, festivals, food trucks, artists and vendors, and parking most of the time.
This transformative development will finally be realized with individual grass-roots support, sponsors, and community-minded contributors. With any pledge, small or large, your cultural legacy is acknowledged.
This project would provide essential economic boost to the community and Alwun House for the next 40+ years. We are only lacking $60,000 to match a $100,000 grant before we celebrate breaking ground. If interested in placing your name on a legacy $100 brick, or $1,000 specimen tree.
Leave your footprint in Alwun House's Green Art Park and help develop the park one brick at a time.
