Before the Valley of the Sun became a thriving, sprawling urban community, the land was home to animals and indigenous peoples. As time passed, people of all backgrounds began migrating to the area in search of new opportunities and resources. With each addition to the land, the cultural and physical landscape began to change; having an immense impact on the land and preexisting cultures. For this exhibition, Vision Gallery will be peeling back the various layers of the Phoenix valley’s history to examine topics relating to preservation, land ownership, and coexistence.

Sediments: Layers of the Phoenix Valley features the work of Ashley Czajkowski, Matthew Garcia, Ann Morton, and Steven Yazzie.
