Flagstaff is a city located in northern Arizona, in the southwestern US. The city is named after a Ponderosa Pine flagpole made by a scouting party from Boston.
Flagstaff’s early economy was based on the lumber, railroad and ranching industries. Today, the city remains an important distribution hub for companies such as Nestlé Purina PetCare and Walgreens, and is home to Lowell Observatory, The U.S. Naval Observatory, the United States Geological Survey Flagstaff Station, and Northern Arizona University with over 18,000 students.
Tourism is a large contributor to the economy, as the city receives over 5 million visitors per year.
The event was held during Flagstaff’s May First Friday ArtWalk with interventions that were completed by Northern Arizona University’s Visual Communication students for Assistant Professor Kimberly Mitchell’s Environmental Graphic Design class with projections taking place on May 3.
