Murals being made, part 71: At the hockey rink

From what I've read, having a hockey rink in the middle of a city is unusual. Tucson does, though: the William J. Dawson Memorial DEK Rink at Doolen Middle School, just east of the Boys & Girls Club of Tucson - Frank & Edith Morton Clubhouse. On a storage container in front of the rink are two murals. BG Boyd Photography sent these aerial photos:

He took those from his drone on July 10, 2022. In the second photo, Grant Road is the street behind.

KGUN9 TV interviewed the muralist on June 20th: New Roadrunners mural by Alejandra Trujillo coming soon.

On June 22, 2022, I caught Alejandra working on the murals. Here she's painting the north side, the one closer to the rink:

Children added some blue animal spectators along the edge of the rink:

Stop by to see some hockey and check out the murals!
