60: Neil Borowicz
These days, you can find Neil Borowicz behind the scenes. The artist co-owns Argo, an art services business that has completed renovations and installations in museums around Arizona, including the newly opened Musical Instrument Museum in North Phoenix and the Western Discovery Museum in Tusayan.

When he's not on a scaffold, he's in the studio. Borowicz graduated with a masters in printmaking from ASU, but has spent the last 15 years focused on his sculpture work. He's been on staff at the Heard Museum and SMoCA, as an exhibition designer.
