The Arizona mining camp

Globe is in Arizona’s gorgeous Tonto National Forest. Gunfighters, outlaws, Apache, ranchers and miners have all passed through Globe’s rich western heritage. The mining and ranching sectors continue to be vital to the city’s economy.

Territorial Prison

On July 1, 1876, the Territorial Prison at Yuma received its first seven detainees. Maria Moreno, one of the 29 women sentenced to Yuma, shot her brother after he disagreed with the way she danced. There was also Pearl Hart, the thief who robbed Arizona’s last stagecoach. Images and vivid exhibits of people who once lived in the building, now a museum, can be found there. Visitors can explore the various cells and see the famous dark cell.

James Turrell’s “Skyspaces” has shifting hues with shadows. The University of Texas student union is a dome-like structure with an open oculus to the outside. Turrell began creating Skyspaces in the 1970s and as of 2013, he had finished 83 of them. The curved white ceiling is lit from within, and hidden lights project a sequence of colors onto it, creating the appearance that the sky is changing colors.
