Some of my favorite Tucson art ~

Here is another one of the fantastic photo murals (series of 4) that decorate both sides of the underpass on Broadway leading to Congress Street. Steve Farley, a photographer and artist, invented the special technique to create these tiles. This is such an interesting series. You can see more photos and read more about this art project here:

Click on "murals" at the bottom of this post to see other photos of these and other murals around town. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for putting those links for more info. The old man in the mural fascinated me and I read that he was a city surveyer from the 1920's. Fascinating project! THX. (:
