New Doors to the Past Application
Casa Grande Main Street is seeking new artwork from local artists in order to create “new” Doors to the Past. The Doors to the Past is a staple historic preservation project located in Historic Downtown Casa Grande on the north-east corner of 3rd Street and Florence Street. Completed in 2013, each of the nine (9) doors represents a piece of Casa Grande’s history as interpreted by a local artist. Due to ten (10) years of Arizona weather, these current Doors to the Past are cracking and falling apart. This program is designed to incorporate a wide variety of artists and new interpretations of Casa Grande’s history into the Historic Downtown Casa Grande district.
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. Click to see map and visit the Doors to the Past in person
