The other side of Mike Haggerty Plaza

BG Boyd Photography is building a searchable database of Tucson murals at I realized that there's no reason for me to take photos of a mural if he already has some. He agreed that I could share his photos to this blog when I don't have a photo of my own. That'll usualy happen on Fridays. In this series of posts, I'll add clickable links below the photos so you can find the original in his mural database at Thanks, as always, for helping people find Tucson art!

Last time, May 30, we showed the north side of Mike Haggerty Plaza — which is not far north of the railroad underpass on 4th Avenue — in the post From Winsett Park to Mike Haggerty Plaza.

This little spot isn't easy to photograph because it's small and there are often things in the way. That's when the gate is open at all, which isn't often! Drone photographer BG Boyd has an answer: an aerial photo.
The original photo is in Together We Thrive on

Here's the same photo cropped to the mural:
Cropped even more, to the credits:
This is the second in a series of phsts from BG Boyd's murals database.

Update (June 6, 2023): Today's post, The other side of Mike Haggerty Plaza, closer, has photos I took from the ground with a good zoom lens.

This is the one that has a small dedication to the marriage of Jannie Cox and Dave Syverson.

Thanks, Claire! When I zoom in on the original photo, I can see that near the middle of the mural at the pointed top of the cloth or quilt that the woman is weaving. This mural is really rich in detail.

I stopped by today (Sunday, June 4). There wasn't as much stuff in front of the mural as there had been years ago. I got detailed photos. I'll post them on Tuesday 6/6.
