[South] Tucson Art

Since seeing the art-filled streets of Tijuana, I have been keeping my eye out for cities that seem to value art and Tucson and South Tucson are certainly prime examples.  Everywhere you look there is art--on the bridges, the roundabouts, the buildings.  Much of the art is tiled or mosaics which are really beautiful and feel very Southwest. 

Here is a very small sampling, the first 8 taken in South Tucson, the rest in Tucson.
