Doors to the Past

 

Casa Grande Main Street announced in early 2013 a new project to bring more public art to historic downtown.  At the time, it was only a pipe dream for arts and historic preservation advocate, Marge Jantz. Today, the completed project is a shining new example of the community spirit that made it a reality in our historic downtown.
