In the same alley in the 400 block of East Roosevelt Street (between eye lounge and Modified Arts), as one of the Lalo Cota murals in my Calaveras post, there are quite a few other colorful murals.

Um, let’s lose the billboard. We Phoenicians would like to see an unobstructed view of a frolicking snow scene. This one is by Joe Pagac of Tucson, and Stephanie Michalsky advertising the National at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe Oct. 14.

Once again, this alley is behind several galleries and shops in the heart of the Downtown arts district. This building above, at the end of the alley on Garfield Street, had some renovating going on while I was photographing and it looks like it may be a new gallery or possibly some other business soon.

More murals to come…
