Allison Miller, a muralist who also works at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, sent this photo of a new mural along the south side of Speedway where it (over-)crosses Highland Avenue:

In June, the Desert Museum (with the help of community volunteers) completed the attached stingray mural; it is located at the top of the Highland Underpass (off of Speedway Blvd, between Mountain & Cherry). It’s the first mural in a series of works that are designed to promote Sonoran Desert conservation awareness. The next mural will be on a TEP substation in the Menlo Park neighborhood (on Simpson, off of the I-10 Frontage Rd.); its theme is all about Pollinators! The Desert Museum is currently seeking volunteers who are interested in becoming involved:

What a gorgeous mural! Thanks, Allison. I'll be looking forward to the next one on the power substation.

Update (October 3, 2016): There's a series of photos of the mural in progress in the entry Murals being made, part 39: TEP south of Cushing.
