Pita Jungle is making history in downtown Phoenix, inside the lovingly restored Gold Spot Marketing Center. One of the Valley's first shopping centers, the Gold Spot was originally built in 1925 and is currently on the National Register of Historic Places. The Spanish Colonial and Mission Revival architecture recall the best of a bygone era, and the relaxing, outdoor patio bar gives the place a nice neighborhood feel.

Josefa Ortiz

Born and raised in Sonora Mexico Josefa migrated to the U.S at an early age to start a new life with her family. She experienced others doing art around her from all over and got inspired to start her own craft right before her second marriage. She slowly started to learn new forms and techniques. Spirituality and the natural world was a big factor in her finding out how she wants her foot to be set in the Art world. Josefa has been doing art for over 10+ years now and you’ll just have to ask her more about how she came to this point if you are interested. Thank you.
