Grandstand Bas Relief

Grandstand Bas Relief
Sculptors Florence Blakeslee and David Carrick Swing depicted 23 scenes of everyday life in Arizona on the Grandstand. This mold emphasizes the role of air travel and automobiles in opening up the American west to tourists. The palm trees capture the 1930s desert vision espoused by Phoenix boosters. Water in the foreground suggests the lush monsoon rains. David Carrick Swing also painted the murals for the Arizona State exhibit at the Golden Gate International Exposition held in San Francisco in 1939. | Creator: Sculpture by David Carrick Swing and Florence Blakeslee | Date: 1938/2018 | Source: Einar Kvaran, photograph, Federal Art Project sculpture, AZ State Fair Grounds, Wikimedia Commons; accessed December 18, 2019. | Rights: Wikimedia Commons
