Plywood art adorns a wall in Ajo, Arizona.
The plaza in Ajo, Arizona is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
Apartments and studios for artists, artisans, and creative business people, Ajo, Arizona.
An artist’s deepest longing
Is for a sacred space
Where she can paint or scribble,
And serve the human race.
Sometimes a lucky artist
Will find a place called home;
But if she is ill-fated,
Then she is bound to roam.

Rugged mountains near Ajo, Arizona
Detail from a mosaic on a community wall, Ajo, Arizona
Through the wilderness
a family of dreamers
hastens hand in hand.
