Here is an interesting piece of public art/sculpture on Ajo Highway - it combines images of athletes with a curved base shaped like the flag. It is situated at the edge of the Kino Sports Complex, a venue with stadium, baseball, softball and soccer fields. For their website, 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. (:
