River of Time Museum and Exploration Center
Settlers in Arizona have depended on precious water from sources like the Verde River for centuries. The importance of water in the desert to us today, and the fascinating history of the Lower Verde Valley region is the focus of the interactive museum and exploration center.
Murals on Utility Boxes
In 2023, Fountain Hills partnered with the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance to commission six murals on utility boxes along the Avenue of the Fountains and Verde River in the Downtown Fountain Hills streetscapes. The murals celebrate themes of Fountain Hills culture, biodiversity, and landscape. Four Arizona artists – Tato Caraveo, Laura Thurbon, Ignacio Garcia, and Jesse Perry were chosen from competitive applicants to design and implement the murals.
