Photographed on Dec. 27, 2018 on the east side of the Rogue Theatre as viewed from N. Herbert Ave.  I took the photo from a parking lot that can be entered from N. 4th Ave.

Update (April 7, 2019): The December 20, 2018 Arizona Daily Star article A look at some of Tucson's many beautiful murals says:

“A mural titled "Sonora" on the side of the Historic Y building at 300 E. University Blvd. was completed on December 18, 2018. Karlito Miller Espinosa aka Mata Ruda, the artist, teaches an illustration class in the school of art at the University of Arizona. With the help of two of his students, Analaura Villegas and Brisa Tzintzun, he completed the commissioned mural within a week. Espinosa says the mural is a quilt of images that represent some of the different organizations that have offices in the building”

The January 9, 2019 Arizona Daily Wildcat story UA students paint the town with new mural has much more information.
