Sedona Hotel Best Western Arroyo Roble & Creekside Villas Welcomes James Muir Sculptures
Sedona, AZ: The Best Western Plus Arroyo Roble Hotel & Creekside Villas proudly announces the arrival of two extraordinary sculptures by nationally renowned local artist, James Muir.
Phil Evans, Managing Member of the Best Western Arroyo Roble Hotel & Creekside Villas, has long been a fan of local artists and the opportunity to showcase their works on property in Sedona. The larger of the two sculptures, “Caduceus” stands 12’ high, weighs 3,000 pounds, and is recognized internationally as the symbol of medicine. Artist James Muir shares, “Caduceus has become an Angel of Healing rising, like the mystical Phoenix heralding in a new era of harmony and peace, to heal the earth and all its inhabitants with love as the master physician.”
Working with the Sedona Arts Center and the City of Sedona, this opportunity to showcase Muir’s art in front of the hotel, is one Evans finds beneficial for everyone. “By offering a location in front of the hotel, we provide our guests with not only stunning red rock views, but one of a kind pieces of art. The talent is endless in Sedona and by having these two sculptures available for visitors, our hotel guests, and residents to see, we hope they will want to explore the art buying opportunities and enjoy the talent we love in this community” Evans shared. He continued, “We are very appreciative of the Muir’s generosity and the efforts of the wonderful folks at Sedona Arts Center.”
The second bronze sculpture, “The Children,” is smaller in size but just as special in meaning. It reflects the innocence and trust of small children inheriting a world not of their making yet filled with the hope of creating a better future. This smaller piece sits adjacent to Caduceus and can be viewed by all visitors to Sedona as they stroll by.
For over 50 years the Sedona Arts Center has remained a destination for artists and those who love art. Offering a fine art gallery, exhibits, and school of the arts, they continue to be instrumental in providing education for both artists and visitors from around the world.
