Latino Culture Celebration (Luis Mena)
Artist Luis Mena painted the new mural on the Century Link building at 142 E. Pennington St. as part of the city of Tucson’s Mural Arts Program.
Luis Mena’s mural covers the front, the doorway, curves around to the side, and overflows onto the overhang of the building. Just 7-feet high but an impressive 83-feet long, it includes blossoms, birds, a mariachi and a deep blue background that pulls you in and cools you off. It’s a colorful celebration of the Latino culture in Tucson, and practically shimmers with energy thanks to the glitter the artist added in strategic spots.
