One of the signature elements of our event is the collaboration with Phoenix Phabulous Experience, a mural collection and storytelling program sharing the rich history of Phoenix. Artists are aligned along the west side of the Festival perimeter, creating a connected, flowing work of art. Each mural panel is available for sale. Proceeds benefit the artists themselves, and Phoenix Center for the Arts.

Past, Present, or Imagined Future
At the Festival, the community will participate in a storytelling immersive workshop creating a short poem, stories and/or small painting about their perspectives, feelings, experience and/or vision for any of the following years: 2020-2025. Their work will be incorporated into the final mural which will be revealed in April 2023. Tiesha will be painting live, curating a piece of art based on her intuition and emotion felt by the students’ expression!
Art is the vehicle she uses to engage, serve, uplift and transform the community.
“I AM inspired by the beauty of bold creativity in urban culture, innovation, storytelling, emotional rawness and music. It is the exploration of expression and intense attraction for authenticity that leads me on a journey of reflective brushwork and bold visuals.
Decoding life experiences while creating art that speaks to and from the soul. My higher calling is to use art as a vehicle to engage, serve, uplift and transform the community. Raising the level of consciousness. DEEP CONNECTION and DESIRE to think without limitations, provoke a feeling, an emotion, a story, a vision for unveiled new perspectives to INSPIRE GREATNESS.”
