On November 22, 2014, I cruised by the two sets of mural panels along Toole Avenue north of the building at 191 East Toole. Back then, the murals on the panels were changing fairly often. I've tried to keep track of these (you can find other photos from this list), but I never posted this set of photos to the blog. First, here are the two sets of panels:
And closeups of the panels we haven't shown on the blog before 11/22/2014, from left to right:
Every Monday starting from Maynards Market, tons of Tucsonans “get out!” to walk around downtown Tucson. Two of the walk routes visit murals. Look for the Mural Walks section near the top right corner of their webpage:
Isaac Caruso has painted a new mural at La Suprema Works & Events in Barrio Viejo (just south of downtown). The mural unveiling is this Friday, November 15 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. Here are a picture of the mural and a form to RSVP:
I found an entry on the Cactus Catz blog, Wordless Wednesday : Veterans Day - November 15, 2018. It had four photos and a story starting with a photo caption “Monday, as I was walking, I saw a man. [H]e was painting a mural on his wall the names of the fallen. He remembers.”
Though I have permission from Cactus Catz to show her photos, I wasn't able to reach her to ask where the mural is. So I searched Google Maps' Street View. Thank you for sharing these, Mary.
Update (November 9, 2020): I have sad news — and just before Veterans Day 2020. The man who painted this wall (and repainted it over and over) — Robert M. Norwood, age 63, who (as he wrote) about military service “My family has (5) gen. in this. So far (6) lives lost in service to it.” — died after a passerby thought he was spray-painting graffiti and fought with him. Here's the story from the Arizona Daily Star: Tucson police: Man mistaken for graffiti vandal dies in Election Day clash.
If a mural is paint on a wall, this piece of (what looks like) leather doesn't qualify because it's lashed to a wooden frame that's fastened to the wall. But maybe not. We'll let you make up your own mind!
