Murals along freeway underpasses are pretty common sights — especially along the recently-renovated stretch of Interstate 10 through downtown. Yesterday's post showed the 22nd Street underpass, which probably thousands of people drive by every day. I thought I'd start 2012 with a more unusual mural spot in Tucson. You won't see these from the freeway. Instead, park and walk — or ride your bicycle — four blocks north, to the 18th Avenue underpass. When I took these photos on June 1, 2011, the underpass was for pedestrians only.
I walked around the underpass clockwise from the southeast corner. Here's the southeast:
Second, the southwest corner:

The north center (much bigger than the others):
And, last, the northeast corner:
Happy mural-hunting in 2012!
