Cyfi's Linda Ronstadt mural in her Music Hall

Tucson's Rock “Cyfi” Martinez now travels the world painting murals and makes his home in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis / St. Paul. He's come back to Tucson a few times recently. The best-known mural he's painted recently has to be the one inside the newly-renamed Linda Ronstadt Music Hall — formerly the Tucson Music Hall. Cyfi painted with Joel Valdez (his Instagram is @joel2valdez; you can probably see it without an account if you don't click on any photos). Here are photos from May 7th on Instagram @cyfione (to see more, click the arrow in the circle at the right edge):

The Arizona Daily Star has more: Photos: The Tucson Music Hall renamed for Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Linda Ronstadt

If you're a Star subscriber, you can read this story of Cyfi and the mural and see even more photos: Tucson muralist found inspiration from Linda Ronstadt's story

I'm hoping to get a chance to take a photo myself. If I do, I'll update this.

Panaderia at a tortilleria

On September 20, 2019, we showed a mural by Jilmar Alaniz on Tortilleria Don Juan (where you can buy tortillas). The same building also has Panaderia La Providencia (where you can buy bread). There's also a small restaurant inside. When I stopped by on April 3rd, 2021, I found that the panaderia had its own mural, next to the front door, just to the left (south) of the Tortilleria Don Juan mural. It was partly covered over:
A closer look shows that they're riding a bicycle together:
(I joined the shadow and bright areas with my favorite free photo editor, GIMP.)

I'll keep an eye out for the mural to be repaired or replaced.
