Cheez Whiz and Public Art

I took my Dad to the Philadelphia Sandwich Company in Scottsdale – home of the Philadelphia Cheesesteak. We went to their newest location in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. The ingredients to their famous sandwiches include thinly sliced eye-round steak, melted cheese (American, Provolone or Cheese Whiz), oven-fresh baked bread and grilled onions. For me, you always have to go with the whiz. We then walked around the Scottsdale canal project by crossing the Soleri Bridge (2010) by artist Paolo Soleri. We also looked at the large public art The Doors (2007) by Donald Lipski enhanced with sounds with Jim Green’s Sound Passage. The Doors is a kaleidoscopic sculpture that when you walk in it you see multiple reflections of yourself that also contains an oculus that creates the optical illusion of a geodesic dome overhead. It’s an incredible piece of public artwork.
