"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

Let's Save Paul Coze's Artwork for all Generations!

I want you to know that I am not writing about Paul Coze because I knew him so well, for, unfortunately, I did not. I am writing about him because you need to know about him…and his artwork deserves to be appreciated.

It has been a great disappointment to me to realize that so many of his public works have been torn down or altered over the years, some even during his lifetime. I would see them around town and, at my young age, almost took them for granted because there were at one time so many of them. Didn’t all cities have beautiful artworks, tributes to their societies, just like Phoenix? It took me many years of maturing to realize that although many cities do have public art, Paul Coze's artwork was unique! It was dynamic! No other artwork could possibly replace it. Please, let’s save whatever is left of Paul Coze’s artwork for us, our children and our children’s children.
