For the Veterans on Veterans' Day

This patriotic mural is on the wall at 
Miller's Surplus in Tucson at 406 N. 6th Ave.
Remember to honor your military veterans today.

Update: Five and a half years before this blog entry went online, the mural had been trashed. I found the story from March 28, 2003 in the Tucson Citizen archives: ‘Cowards’ deface military icons on store.

New Mural Friends

Hello, Fellow Tucson Mural Enthusiasts,
          Just wanted to let you know that Mike Dominguez of the Davis Dominguez Gallery in Tucson (and with the help of Tom Rossi) recently profiled some of the murals from the Tucson Murals Project at a presentation Mike gave at Tohono Chul Park.
In exchange, Mike Dominguez sent me a CD of wonderful Tucson murals to add to the Project.
So, far the next few days and weeks, 
I'll post Mike's contributions.  
I hope you enjoy them.  
I know I will.
