New AZ Daily Star article about Rock Martinez

Today's issue of the Arizona Daily Star ran an article about well-known Tucson (and Minneapolis) muralist Rock Martinez:
Neto's Tucson: From graffiti to murals, an artist evolves
The article has a series of photos, but none showing the whole Rivera/Kahlo mural. There's a complete photo, plus photos of the mural in progress, on this site's page Murals being made, part 41: Cyfi’s Día de los Muertos.

Here's a 2008 Tucson Citizen article about Rock's earlier life:
Denogean: From tagging to legitimate artwork
That article mentions a mural along 5th Avenue. You can see a photo on this blog at Spider mural.

Entrance to the student garden.
Student garden with a mural made of water bottles stuck in the fence.
Garden tool shed. The middle hen says "Control your children, Helen". The hen on the right responds "Control your ATTITUDE".   Sounds like teachers to me.  See lower right for student artists.
In order to include that middle photo, I may have stretched the definition of a mural just a bit.

Pueblo Gardens Elementary

A long mural is across the street from Pueblo Gardens Elementary.  The school is located at 2210 E. 33rd St.  This street becomes E. Menor Stravenue at S. Wilson Ave.  The Mural is along the 2300 block of E. Menor Stravenue between the 2200 blocks of S. Wilson Ave. and S. Amigo Ave.  The artist is Porter McDonald with assistance from the Living Streets Alliance.  The Arizona Daily Star had a nice article about the project on Nov. 20.  See ADS

The first photo is the complete mural.  Clicking on the photo to enlarge it will not do it justice. Therefore, here is a link to a larger image on Flickr that you can enlarge even further and make scrollable by clicking on the Flickr photo. Pueblo Gardens FLICKR Photo
Following the complete mural are the individual panels.  They are then followed by student artwork.

(Note for photographers:  I could have applied Perspective Correction to view the first photo from directly in front. I do that on occasion.  If I had done so in this instance, some might think I had taken the photo from the owner's back yard.  That's trespassing and I would never do it without the owner's permission.)

Bronx Wash mural (complete), part 3 of 3

The previous two entries, plus an earlier entry (Beautiful Bronx Wash), show the great multi-part mural along the concrete wash between the two sides of Linden Street. You can see the mural from the north side of Linden.

These photos show the mural from east (left) to west (right). The previous entry showed the new part of the mural as it was being painted.

I snapped these photos on September 14.
