Cave Creek Museum Celebrates Gerry Jones
October 1, 2019 - May 31, 2020
The Cave Creek Museum’s 2019-2020 Featured Artist is Gerry Jones, of Carefree, Arizona. Throughout seven decades of siting, designing, building, and teaching, Jones has embraced the beauty of Arizona’s rugged landscape to sculpt desert dwelling perfection. Questioning “Must we destroy in order to build?” Jones challenged traditional site-leveling construction. He established Maricopa County’s Hillside Ordinance, preserving its unique terrain and wild denizens. Blending structure with setting, his building plans incorporate boulders, rock faces, and natural features, enabling people to live symbiotically with the environment. Jones literally put Carefree on the map–as its Master Builder, he set the town center’s streets and venues, radiating out into stunning Desert Foothills neighborhoods.
Gerry Jones’ exhibits and related events will be hosted by the Cave Creek Museum throughout this next season. Please return to our web page during Fall 2019 to get more news and updates.
