About the Wish You Were Here Mural

The “Wish You Were Here” mural was designed by artist JC Amberlyn in cooperation with the Powerhouse Visitor Center as a partnership with Arizona@Work Mohave County. It was completed by four young local artists working under Amberlyn’s guidance.

The mural was designed to mimic large letter linen postcards that were popular in the 1930s, 1940s and early 1950s. Scenic wonders and local landmarks selected for inclusion include the El Trovatore Motel and Hotel Beale. To enhance the period appearance vintage vehicles were added to the mural including the 1950 Studebaker on display in the Route 66 Museum at the Powerhouse Visitor Center.

JC Amberlyn is an acclaimed artist, author, photographer, and animator. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the Arizona Game and Fish Department Outdoor Writer of the Year in 2008, the Women Making History in The Arts award, and recognition as a photojournalist for the Kingman Daily Miner.
