2019 Downtown Murals Project, 2 of 4: La Madre

Racheal Rios and Carlos Valenzuela painted that dreamy scene above two benches just across the sidewalk from Alameda Street. It's not much like the original design, which you can see (unless the photos have been updated) in the pages Downtown Tucson is getting 4 new murals this spring (from the Arizona Daily Star's This is Tucson).

David Aber caught the mural painting in progress on May 4th, 2019, when the title he heard was “Families Belong Together, Water and Thorns”:

(As always, you can click on a photo for larger views of all of them.)

The two benches are surrounded by scenes with “you are my other me” in English and Spanish:

The credits are on the side of the right-hand bench:

Next time, it's down the street a block to two side-by-side murals.
