WHERE WATER IS KING & SHADOW IS QUEEN

  • ARIZONA HISTORICAL SOCIETY kicks off Phoenix Mural Festival 2021 with its Virtual History Series. Author Mehmet Murat Ildan once wrote, “In the empire of desert, water is the king and shadow is the queen.” Since the early 1990s, Arizona and the Southwest have been plagued with a megadrought. If you’re curious about why Arizona seems detached from this reality, this conversation-with-the-experts will help you understand Arizona’s complex relationship with water, agriculture, growth, and landscape.
