A mysterious mural in a Tucson backyard turns out to be the largest Ted DeGrazia mural still in existence. It was originally painted by the artist in 1948 or 1949 and gives us a glimpse into DeGrazia’s mind before his fame and fortune. Nearly 70 years later, the mural had started to succumb to the elements. Fine Art conservator, Charlie Burton was brought in to restore it. She worked on the mural three days a week for six months and logged 240 hours bringing it back to life.
