Visitors to the Phoenix Convention Center can now see 16 murals depicting nine periods of the city’s history, including an imagined Phoenix future.

The exhibit is put on by Phoenix Phabulous Experience. Valley artist Marisa Hall Valdez, whose mural depicts the post-World War II boom years of 1945-1959, and Carol Poore, president of Phoenix Phabulous Experience, spoke about the murals.
