The neighborhood surrounding the corner of Glenn & Columbus created a wonderful art display! It is part mosaic, part 3-D sculpture, and part bench for just sitting and relaxing. The wonderful animals include a turtle, roadrunner, lizard and desert tortoise. This corner is colorful and fun and a neighborhood project of beauty. What a great job they did! Scroll down for the names of all participants.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
Beautiful, colorful, artistic desert corner! I want to go and put my hand on the desert tortoise and lizard, and feel the sun-warmth that's coming from that gigantic sun over the mountain on the wall! Thank you to these Tucson artists for brightening a mid-town street corner.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Elizabeth, for your note. I, too, was grateful that this big group of people put so much energy, imagination, love, and time into this neighborhood project.ReplyDelete
I lived on this side of town for 2 years in the Hazen townhomes south of the intersection. I miss taking walks to the park with the kids and hubby. I will miss seeing this cool landmark on Columbus and Glenn.ReplyDelete
