10th at 27th revisited

Not long after this blog started, we posted photos of murals along South 10th Avenue just as it entered South Tucson from the north. In June, Mark Fleming revisited one of the murals — the fantastic one around the power substation at 10th Avenue & 27th Street. Some of the mural has been trashed by taggers, but overall it looks pretty much the same — more than seven years later.

The Tucson Citizen article (by Charlotte Lowe), quoted in that original article, said: “Perhaps South 10th Avenue, which becomes Main Avenue as it approaches downtown, should be renamed Art Avenue. Or maybe Avenida de las Artes."

Thanks, Mark!
