The Archer Center Mural Site had
only one posting on June 13, 2010 that read:
“This site will report on the
Archer Neighborhood Center Mural project. This exciting after school mural
project starts in September and includes;
- After school mural arts
workshops for youth ages 11-17 (Mondays 3-5pm)
- Neighborhood design sessions and
- Inter-generational Workshops
Check back soon!
A flier was circulated and several youth responded to an
question and answer session. After the presentation it was clear youth were excited
about the project.
The Flier Read:
“ Do you like Painting and Drawing?

Neighborhood Youth Mural Team

"The project never did come to pass, but lessons were learned that have become invaluable as Tucson citizens weave a web of arts and culture that can stand the test of time. In reality we learned so much about the barriers and challenges to creating murals in our current economic and cultural climate." - Excerpt from artists journal Sept. 2010
