“Better Block” Community Mural Project

April 25, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

Why I Love Where I Live and the Community Mural Project are teaming up again to host the “Better Block” Event in the Pie Allen & Rincon Heights neighborhoods.  

Come participate in community art and murals on the boarded up windows of the old Green Dolphin and delight a re-imagined street with a traffic circle and bike lanes courtesy of Living Streets Alliance, as well as sidewalk tables under the trees. We invite you to come share on a sticker, “I want ______ in my neighborhood”, and dream of what could be in this community space.

The Underestimated City & Words on the Avenue will both be sharing their work and artistic talent through live, mixed media murals. Come watch the transformation of this abandoned building! 

Enjoy local food from Bellas Gelato ShoppeVina Baguette & You Sly Dog, with music by Mariachi Nueva Melodia as we re-activate this once (and future?!!) neighborhood gathering space. Share your dreams for this building and help others catch this vision as we create a “Better Block” and celebrate Bike Fest Tucson!
