The Herberger Theater was approached by the company that runs the Arizona Center to activate one of the empty spaces. The gallery was created as a way to feature the work of Arizona artists and attract visitors, downtown workers and students.
The City of Glendale asked if we would be interested and we said yes! Glendale was one of the sponsors.

During our opening reception last Friday at the University Club Phoenix I was asked to share something about one of the pieces of artwork that was on display. I decided to go with the image displayed below, “La Merced Rising Above The Rooftops”, but after getting started with my reply, I realized the image I needed to help explain the backstory wasn’t on display. The main point of my story was that the photo of each of the two cathedrals was the view from the other. After the reception and thinking more about it, I thought the story would make a good post. At the same time I hoped it would help make up for the story I gave at the reception. 🙂
The photos in this post are from our last trip to Nicaragua, which was last year. This was our first trip to Granada. Granada is located on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America.
Cathedral La Merced
The photo below was captured from the front balcony of the Cathedral De Granada located on the Parque Central. The church was originally built in 1534 and is only a couple of blocks away from the Cathedral De Granada.
Map Of Granada
Below is a map of Granada showing the location of the two cathedrals.
Cathedral De Granada
Below is an image of the Cathedral De Granada, this was the photo that wasn’t on display at the University Club. The Cathedral was originally build in 1583, was destroyed in the 19th century, and rebuild in the early 20th century. The view from the La Merced Church shows Lake Nicaragua in the background.
