Tucson's Trompe L'oeil Bus - Stand back!

If you're not prepared for this image, it might startle you. This huge photographic tile mural by Tucson artist Steve Farley depicts a vintage Tucson bus zooming west on Broadway near the Barraza-Aviation Parkway ramp. Whoa!

This is one of a series of four black and white photo tile murals on Broadway that were installed in 1999 and voted "Best Mural" and "Best Public Art Commission" by Tucsonans. I'll post the others in the weeks ahead. The photos used are all vintage Tucson scenes and people - a wonderful public art project!

Here is more information about the art and the artist:
