“‘Her Secret Is Patience’ by artist Janet Echelman is a 145-foot-tall aerial sculpture that floats above Civic Space Park in [Downtown] Phoenix. Named after a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson – ‘Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience’ – this unique work is especially magical when it lights up at night. You can see it for yourself at 424 N.
Central Ave.”
