Updates by Jerry Peek: On October 23, 2023, before the mural had been painted, the Arizona Daily Star published This local artist wants your input for a new Tucson mural. A quote from Pen Macias:

“The mural is going to be created as if it's fabric-draped over the side of the building and then it'll have a night sky with a giant moon,” she said. “Where the community stories come in is I have papel picado flags that are going to be draped across the moon sky. And each of those flags are going to tell a different story that I'm getting from the community.”

The Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona, which organizes funding for and manages public art, released an article December 20, 2023: Press Release: Arts Foundation unveils artists for Thrive in the 05 project.

Our next post, February 14, shows another area mural: Thrive in the 05 by Salvador Sahuaqui.
