TMA mural reappears at Galeria Mistica

At the start of 2011, after almost 20 years on display, the iconic mural Nuestro futuro/Nuestras raices humanas was taken down from the Tucson Museum of Art. (If you missed the story, it's in Goodbye to one Tineo mural and Adios para siempre.)

The mural, which was painted on plywood (and only intended to be temporary), has since been cut into pieces. You can see the pieces, and meet artist David Tineo, at Galeria Mistica, 2318 South 4th Avenue, Saturday, February 25, from 1 to 6 PM.

An email from TMA this week said “55 remnant pieces have been carefully crafted for sale with a portion of the proceeds going directly back to the Museum.”
