Title: Access Tucson
Location: 124 East Broadway
Details: Mural with claw-headed lady.
Just think, this could have been a plain block wall of the Access
Tucson building with simple parking lot instructions posted on the
side. Within a few months, it would have collected its share of
graffiti and would need repainting. Instead, you get a nice painting of
a claw-headed lady. I thinks that's a fair trade. Even though she's
dropping a few claws. Shedding, no doubt.
I'm not at all sure how Access Tucson came up with this mural design,
but it's definitely memorable! It's colorful, whimsical, and certainly
a step up from a plain blank wall, as my partner so cogently notes. The
bugs and the starfish with safety pin (or possibly it's a quilt block)
add an interesting touch, along with the claw-headed lady. On the
whole, the mural is cheerful and funny, and brings a bright note to
what might otherwise be a somewhat hum-drum corner.
