As the host city of the 2015 Super Bowl, the City of Glendale had several critical missions in the successful execution of Super Bowl XLIX. A Glendale Public Art grant allowed photographic artist, Roni Ziemba of Ziemba Photographic Arts, to capture the various roles of public safety staff at the Super Bowl and their tireless work to keep Glendale safe.

Photographic art from Ziemba’s collection, Excellence in Public Safety - The Art of First Response in Glendale, AZ, featuring Glendale Police and Firefighters, will be permanently displayed at the Glendale Regional Public Safety Center.  This permanent display of art allows a brief glimpse behind the yellow caution tape rarely seen by the average citizen. The art display was fully funded through the Glendale Public Art Program.

“It is a great honor to create modern visual art of the men and women who risk their lives each day to protect and serve our Arizona communities,” Ziemba said. “I am humbled by the sacrifice these heroes, and their families, make each day they pin on their badges.”

The unveiling ceremony was held on Tuesday, July 28 at 1:30pm at the Glendale Regional Public Safety Center located at 11550 W. Glendale Avenue. Along with the unveiling, Ziemba hosted a signing for her book, Excellence in Public Safety - The Art of First Response in Glendale, AZ, a compilation of her public safety collection featuring Glendale Police and Fire.
