Community Mural Forum Sunday May 19

Free and Open to the Public

You are cordially invited to participate in a Community Mural Forum Sunday May 19 from 2-4pm at the Downtown Library, located at 101 N. Stone Ave. Tucson AZ 85701.

Your voice is a critical part of this conversation, as we reflect on the Mural Program and it’s future.

Since 1996 the Tucson Arts Brigade mural program has been hiring artists to work in schools, neighborhoods and community centers while creating a city wide outdoor gallery. Our goal was to lift the tide for all artists, providing publicity and opportunity. Our downtown murals have become destinations and landmarks, bringing thousands of people to our downtown.

This discussion will include brief presentations from this years downtown muralists;

Ignacio Garcia, Jessica Gonzales, Rachel Rios, Carlos Valenzuela and  Joe Pagac with opening comments from program manager Michael Schwartz.

We will then go into smaller groups so everyone has time to share their thoughts:

How has the mural program impacted the city ?
What worked well in the mural program, what can be improved ?
Where do you think we should go form here ?
