The Civic Space Park in downtown Phoenix, Arizona is a gathering place for the students attending the Arizona State University (ASU Downtown) Campus just across the street. The Park is across the street from the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. The Park is also located just south of one of the main terminuses of the Phoenix Transit System and has Light Rail stop adjacent to the west. The prominent sculpture that is the centerpiece of the Park, is called Her Secret Is Patience by Janet Echelman and was built at a cost of $2.4 million dollars. The netting is 38 feet off the ground and 100 feet tall and the three support poles are 102 feet, 125 feet and 145 feet tall. The netting is designed to show the movements of the wind. Its shape is supposed to reflect Arizona's cumulus clouds. At night the sculpture is illuminated and the colors represent the blossoms of the cereus cactus that are found Arizona Sonora Desert area surrounding Phoenix and the Salt River Valley.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
