Maybe Murals, part 76

Roundabout at N. 9th Ave. & W. 5th 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 third 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
East Side
West Side
Note - The photo of the west side had to be taken at an angle due to lens flare from the morning sun.

Some of the panels are starting to show the effects of age and weathering.  It also looks like there was some vandalism that had to be painted over.
