Spirit Columns

The artist, Joan Baron, worked with 20 Scottsdale youths ranging in age from 14 to 18 in order to create Spirit Columns at Horizon Park. Students participated in a workshop to develop a theme and then execute the mural. "What excites our spirit" is the emphasis of this project that includes a series of walls and columns that were painted and decorated with colorful tiles and mosaic work. Ceramic leaves, plant forms, and animals, in a variety of bright colors, are also included to create a lyrical expression of our nature and culture.
