Amazingly, this window washer at the Viad Corporate Center in downtown Phoenix is a sculpture! I had to touch his white coveralls to make sure they were bronze as they looked exactly like fabric.

This beautiful property is filled with fascinating, life-sized sculptures. I always love to find new-to-me places where I can take some photos and I just discovered where these sculptures were recently…I’ve driven by the building countless times but they aren’t visible from the street unless you park and walk around.

But this is the best part~to me~how they’ve made these two different pieces interact as though they’re meant to be together…

And how cool is it to immortalize a photographer in bronze?

I like how they are all carefully placed to take full advantage of their surroundings. Apparently there are additional sculptures inside the lobby of a security guard and a man reading the newspaper.

  2. Candace, these are amazing!
    There is no way I would have thought the window washer was bronze.

  3. These sculptures are amazingly lifelike. The puddle jumpers are spectacular in design and execution. WOWl collection today!

    these are really incredible. I truly thought that window washer was real!

  5. Candace, what a great find. I love the idea of art into more art, as you’ve done! The window washer is particularly life-like. Is he a little larger than life-size? All of these pieces look like they’d be fun to re-visit under differing lighting conditions, too.
    Have a happy weekend!

  6. Candace, I love these! What a great find and excellent photos!
