Perhaps the best way to survey Prescott’s physical changes is from the air. Skyviews: Aerial Townscapes of Prescott, 1868 to the Present, showcases relationships between Prescott’s geography and civic growth. Through the eyes of artists and photographers, these bird’s eye views vividly reveal how geography and time changes a community and influences politics, culture, and society.
The exhibit features an eight-foot wide by eight-foot tall photograph of Prescott and the surrounding area taken from an altitude of 20,000 feet, plus fascinating drawings of Prescott in the late 1870s and early 1880s. The exhibit is located in the Liese & Rosenblatt Gallery (foyer) of the Granite Creek Center (across the street from the Museum), 115 South McCormick Street. The building also is home to the Sharlot Hall Museum Library and Archives.
