NYC artist Victor Ving and his photographer girlfriend, Lisa Beggs, are traveling the country painting murals inspired by vintage "Greetings From..."  postcards.  They get help from local artists such as Rock Martinez who painted the letter "C".  The images are: T-Univ. of AZ; U-Saguaro cacti; C-Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead); S-Hotel Congress & John Dillinger; O-San Xavier del Bac & Man in the Maze; N-Sonoran hot dog.  Photographed on Feb. 22, 2017.

The Arizona Daily Star article Muralists paint a Tucson postcard, the Tucson News Now story 'Greetings Tour' makes stop in Tucson to paint new mural and the Greetings Tour - Tucson, AZ web page have more information.

There's another “Greetings from Tucson” mural in our October 5, 2013 entry New @ 1st & Arcadia.
