Maybe Murals, part 75

Dunbar/Spring Roundabout at N. 9th Ave. & W. 1st St.

Mary Lucking was commissioned by the Tucson/Pima Arts Council in 2003 to create artwork for three Roundabouts in the Dunbar/Springs Neighborhood.  This is the second of the three.

Mary has used her art to tell the story of the neighborhood.  Mary also filled the center with desert plants.   Here are the results:
North Side
South Side
West Side
East Side.
Note - The bottom panel of the East Side photo is probably a reference to the old Court St. Cemetery.  See Neighborhood atop cemetery

Some of the panels are starting to show the effects of age and weathering.
