Artists Transform Alley in Downtown Phoenix Into a Giant Canvas

The faces of Frida Kahlo and Carlos Santana now grace an alleyway in downtown Phoenix, thanks to a mural created through a partnership between Arizona Latino Arts and Cultural Center and Downtown Phoenix, Inc. They're part of a mural that's been more than a year in the making — which features work by several local artists, including José Andrés Girón, Roman P. Reyes, Carlos Rivas, and Elizabeth Toledo, to name a few. On Saturday, January 14, artists and community members gathered to celebrate the mural's completion with music, art, food, and drink. Here's a look at the mural and Saturday's festivities. All photos by Lynn Trimble.
