On Monday, August 18, 2014, Art Allsworth, lawyer, mentor, friend to Cosanti Foundation for over 40 years, died unexpectedly in his sleep. During a long legal career, Art gave ardent support to the many challenges faced by Paolo Soleri and Cosanti, pro bono. He had a deep appreciation for Paolo’s genius and commitment, and for the contributions of Arcosanti Alumni and residents that have kept this improbable project going. His keen understanding of law, his special talent for word smithing, his powerful penchant for storytelling to illustrate legal points will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with his family, all his children of whom he was so proud.
A Memorial Gathering for family and friends will be held at 11 am, Saturday, August 30, 2014 at A.L. Moore-Grimshaw Mortuaries Bethany Chapel, 710 W Bethany Home Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85013 (602) 249-2111
