Alum from the late 1970’s and early 1980’s will remember this beautiful painting.
It was on display on the back wall of the original Arcosanti café for many years.


? The painting was done by artist and alumna Paula Wittner, commissioned in 1977 by alum Russ Adams and it disappeared in the mid 1980’s. Apparently it was stored in Phoenix and the storage company had gone out of business. The painting reappeared in Prescott, at Drake Station Trading Company. Their owners, trying to trace the origin of the painting, got in touch with Paula Wittner just recently.


? This prompted Russ Adams and Paula to visit the new owners and Russ Adams bought the painting back.
It has been stored in the Arcosanti Soleri Archives, and now facilities manager Randall Schultz built a crate to ship the beautiful painting back to Russ Adams. [Randall Schultz and Cliff Hersted]
