Pueblo Grande Museum

Exhibit Celebrates Image of the Saguaro V & MARIE ED TY IA

It has anchored countless movie sets, graced countless advertisements and tourist souvenirs and inspired artists and photographers for generations. The saguaro cactus is an undeniable image of the desert Southwest. The Pueblo Grande Museum in Phoenix celebrates the saguaro’s iconographic power, imagery and symbolism in a show that runs through March 1, 2004. The exhibition, “Saguaro: Popular Image and Cultural Icon,” is on loan from Tohono Chul Park. It features artwork that demonstrates how the well-recognized cactus has become a popular representation of the American West. Other works illustrate the saguaro’s significance as a cultural symbol. Work from contemporary artists in a

variety of media include: Paul Mirocha’s tongue-in-cheek painting of Arizona Cactus Frog depicts a frog in a cactus-like skin and is accompanied by a satirical biological description. Stu Jenks observes the desert sentinels in his nighttime photography. Adriel Heisey’s aerial photographs offer a unique perspective on saguaros in both natural and artificial environments. Pueblo Grande Museum is located at 4619 E. Washington St. and is open Monday through Saturday from 9 am 4:45 pm and on Sundays from 1 - 4:45 pm. Admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children ages six to 17 and free for kids under six. Admission for seniors (over age 55) is $1.50. For more information, go or call 602495-0901.
