Amphi Neighborhood History Mural

The Tucson Mural Arts Program works with Tucson youth to, as their blog (below) says, “to have the children and teens participate in [murals] to help them get involved and help build healthy, safe, compassionate and vibrant neighborhoods, increase literacy, reducing violence and beautify the places they live and work.” In 2013, one of their programs was a new mural on the north side of Woods Memorial Library. (The library already has “flying books” public art.)

Their blog tells part of the story — see part 1 and part 2. Here's the mural, in a photo I took January 9, 2015. As always, you can click for a larger view:

(There's another Amphi history mural in Amphi Art and Mural Club Creates Public Art. I'll aim to take a photo and post it online later this year.)
