Rock Martinez in the Tucson Citizen, 2008

The print edition of the Tucson Citizen is no more... though the news“paper” lives on at Thousands of articles from 2006 to 2009 are online in the Tucson Citizen Morgue, Part 1 — a great resource. Metro columnist Anne T. Denogean wrote many columns that I enjoyed.

One that I missed — until earlier this month, when I was searching for mural news — is a story about muralist Rock Martinez. She wrote the column From tagging to legitimate artwork on May 2, 2008. In case you missed the story, too, you can click there to read it.

Update (June 19, 2016): As I read this eight-year-old article, I realized that some of the murals are on this blog. Here are the ones I recognize:
  • Fanciful images that look like they came out of a kid’s sketchbooks – and they did – are spreading across the wall that stretches for half a city block at Congress and Fifth Avenue: Spider Mural (May 30, 2009; also click the link at the bottom for a later view).
  • …the Nimbus Brewing Company: No missing Nimbus (April 24, 2010)
  • exploding heart mural on the front of Coffee Vein: You Aorta Have Some Coffee (April 20, 2008)
