Actually, it isn’t all that difficult. Especially when the Canalscape installation is in full swing at ASU Art Museum – we have green plants all over the front of the building and in the Nymphaeum (that’s our swanky name for our front entry area that’s located down the stairs). This is going to be an exciting project, and one that I personally hope becomes reality in the near future. Imagine seeing a currently-dull-and-uninhabited canal from the street, fully redesigned with parks, or shopping, or restaurants, or anything creative that reflects the neighborhood around it. We may soon have (more!) really wonderful spaces around our fair city that are inviting, relaxing, invigorating – our very own oases.
Come see what it’s about at the opening reception on Tuesday, November 10, from 6 – 9 pm at ASU Art Museum. It’s free. There will be food, drink, music and a dance performance! All this amid the fun of Tempe Greenstreets, happening outside our door on Mill Avenue in conjunction with the U.S. Greenbuild Conference. It’s going to be an exciting evening!
…in case you missed it, the title reference.
