The Ajo Street mural project started in 2015 as I led artists from throughout southern Arizona in the creation of more than 30 murals of all sizes in the center of Ajo, AZ. The following year Ajo youth and artists came to Tucson for a Community Build Day event. In 2017 Tucson artists return to Ajo for our third year of collaborations and mural painting on a large grange.

Ajo is in the Sonoran Desert, tucked away in Western Pima County in Arizona, about 120 miles southwest of Phoenix and 130 miles west of Tucson. Ajo is landlocked with the Tohono O'odham Nation to the east, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument to the south, and the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and Goldwater Gunnery Range to the north and west.
