This boldly colored tile mural celebrates Sam Lena, who served Tucson's South Side as a County Supervisor. It's rare to hear a politician praised by elected officials (of both parties) as well as constituents but Sam was definitely a beloved figure. This mural is near Sam Lena Park, a very nice facility on Ajo Way that offers many community amenities. To learn more about the park, click here.
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. (:
