Creative Machines is headquartered in the vibrant community of Tucson, Arizona, home to diverse cultures, art, and history. Tucson is a hub for arts and culture, with many museums, galleries, and performance spaces showcasing the work of local and international artists.
We've had the honor to create several public art pieces in Tucson. This video (3:36) showcases these sculptures on the Tucson map.

Not shown in the video above is the festival sculpture called the Urn. Tucson hosts the annual All Souls Procession, a colorful and moving celebration and mourning of the lives of lost loved ones and ancestors. The event brings over 150,000 participants to Downtown Tucson each year in early November. In 2012, Creative Machines had the honor of fabricating the iconic Urn for the famous All Souls Procession. The Urn is a receptacle for mementos, prayers, messages, and remembrances of those we have loved and lost. At the culmination of the Finale, the Urn is burned, and the collective hopes, prayers, love, grief, memories, tributes, and remembrances are consumed by the flames and dissolve into the ether, bringing an end to another All Souls season.
