Even over here on the “wrong side of the tracks,” the building is such a welcoming sight for staff and visitors alike.

But even after five years, we haven’t forgotten the big rigs!

There was a spitfire named Polly Rosenbaum, Arizona Legislator, who championed the construction of this building.

(She still holds a pretty special place of honor here).

Thanks to colleagues, patrons, supporters, and friends, for continuing to make this building such a treasure for the State of Arizona! Happy five year anniversary…we’re looking forward to many anniversaries to come!
