Mi Art Casa Es Su Art Casa

“Would you like a Coca Cola and a muffin?” Kim Moody of the Alwun House asks as we walk through a nostalgic front hallway toward a distinguished, sun-drenched door leading to the back yard. With the swoop of his hand, it opens to a rare downtown courtyard oasis that I wasn’t prepared for. It seemed to proclaim a serendipity existence: a Sonoran masterpiece in the center of Phoenix.

For 24 years, the Sonoran Desert Chorale has delighted audiences in the Valley, singing an eclectic selection of music that transcends our differences and accentuates our commonality.

Through the use of infrared photography, Fields shares an almost other-wordly view of our own Arizona back yard. We’re thrilled to share his work in our pages.
