Deer Valley Rock Art Center is an archaeology museum and 47-acre Sonoran Desert preserve. Voted a Phoenix Point of Pride and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a handicap accessible quarter-mile trail to view over 1,500 carved symbols on rock made between 500 and 7,000 years ago. The museum provides preservation, connection and respect for cultural heritage sites and desert environments and it is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country ? the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
