PCA Helps 26 Blocks Go Virtual

26 Blocks was created by Joey Robert Parks, a local ghostwriter who was tired of the bad reputation Phoenix holds for many people inside and outside Arizona. Parks says comparing Phoenix to other big cities like Portland, Seattle or New York City, is like comparing your wife or girlfriend to another woman.

“You’d never tell your wife she’s beautiful, but not as pretty or exciting to be around as some other woman. A big part of 26 Blocks is showing people how awesome and unique Phoenix is in its own right,” says Parks.

Like the 26 alphabet blocks a child uses to stack or build words at playtime, Parks chose 26 city blocks as the foundation of the exhibit. 26 Blocks features 26 of the most celebrated photographers in Phoenix, 26 of the most talented writers in Phoenix and one of the best sculptor/painters in Phoenix.
