Culture and community combined this past week for a unique artist-in-residence program that brought a renowned Mexican artist to downtown Phoenix.

Betsabeé Romero, a contemporary artist from Mexico City, collaborated with other artists from throughout the Valley during her stay in downtown Phoenix. Together, they used their cultural experiences as inspiration for a temporary public art installation at Growhouse at Second Street and Portland Avenue.
