A Tucson artist I know, K. Loren Dawn, has been keeping me up to date on the new Mountain Avenue mural project. Part of what's exciting is that David Tineo has been working with a group of artists on the project. We showed the empty mural frame on July 9th.
There's a celebration for the new mural on Saturday, August 27, at Mountain Avenue Church of Christ, 2848 Mountain (at Adelaide), from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. There'll be refreshments and entertainment. The party hosts are the Hedrick Acres Neighborhood Association and CODAC Behavioral Health Services. Call Tippy Atkins at 327-4505 x8535 to RSVP or for more info.
Other key sponsors included Tucson Pima Arts Council/Kresge Arts in Tucson, Community Partnership of Southern Arizona, The Haven, Pima Prevention Partnership Sarnoff Artist Materials, Creatista and Kevin Anderson Productions.
(I didn't take the photo. I cropped it from an official announcement that I got by email.)
Update (August 28, 2011): here are photos from the mural unveiling.
