Tucson Murals offer a glimpse of Mexican, Indian and Anglo Cultures!

Here in Tucson there are hundred of murals that predominate many different structures, including buildings, highways, park benches, schools, poles,etc. With a few gallons of gas, one can spend a worthwhile afternoon exploring Tucson's urban art. In Tucson, this means primarily on the south and west sides, where working class Hispanics and Native American populations predominate.

Murals are probably the most egalitarian of art forms; while not of museum quality, they are inexpensive to paint; free to view and available for all. Cruising to murals in Tucson affords the viewer a glimpse of many different cultures. In the photos, a small sampling of these murals are displayed. Please enjoy!
