Celebrating Arizona Centennial Through Photographic Exhibit

Celebrating Arizona Centennial Through Photographic Exhibit

In celebration of the Arizona Centennial, a 50-photo exhibit will be on display presented by Alliance Bank in downtown Phoenix at CityScape.


Running from now through the end of March 2012, the exhibit entitled “At Work in Arizona” will mark the 100th year since admitted to the Union when it achieved its statehood as the “Grand Canyon State” on February 14, 1912. The photographic exhibit will display the growth in technology through the years as Arizona become one of the fastest-growing regions in the country.

From the rugged mining days of the young state, to the modern urban city spaces we now know and love, the two-level lobby exhibit will, through the eyes of the camera lens, depict the people, landscapes and spirit of America’s 48th state and its past 100 years with photographs and descriptions.

The pictures within the gallery are part of Alliance Bank’s permanent collection, created by Arizona based photographer and historian Marilyn Szabo.

“We are very proud to be a part of the Arizona Centennial with the presentation of our historic photographic exhibit celebrating the first 100 years of Arizona’s economic achievements,” stated Jim Lundy, chief executive officer on Alliance Bank.

“As Arizona’s largest locally-owned bank, we are especially pleased to be able to provide an opportunity for the public to see the diversity of Arizona’s commerce and the entrepreneurial spirit of those who work today to promote Arizona’s growth and quality of life for generations to come,” he added.

The exhibit will be open to the public Monday through Friday through March 31st, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Alliance Bank’s headquarters at CitsyScape in downtown Phoenix.
