Artists sought to decorate benches

Uptown Plaza in Central Phoenix has launched an art contest to decorate the center’s seven wooden benches.

Uptown Plaza, 100 E. Camelback Road, will accept submissions for artwork June 1-15. The benches were made by Modern Manor’s Ryan Durkin, who recreated them based on blueprints found in an old trunk of one of Disneyland’s original designers.

Artists will have one month to complete their artwork on the benches (July 1-31), which will then be placed back at Uptown Plaza with a placard acknowledging each artists work. A stipend will be given to the seven chosen artists.
