The Talking Mural

There is a new mural in Tucson and it will talk to you. The Talking Mural is a collaboration between artists Alex Jimenez and Johanna Martinez that celebrates the rich cultural history of South 12th Avenue. The mural illustrates interviews Jimenez conducted with local business owners as part of her long-term project Abecedario Del Sur. The mural was sponsored in part by a New Works Grant from the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona. The Unveiling Pachanga was sponsored by the Southwest Folklife Alliance. You can go see the mural itself at Oasis Fruit Cones on South 12th Avenue or learn more and listen to all the interviews at www.alexclamation.com.
