Have you found your face yet on those black/white portrait tiles under the 4th Avenue Underpass?
My husband located his on the Northeast panel and I found mine last night on Southwest panel 1, as all 4 panels are now up on the walls. We were excited to finally locate our portraits amongst the thousands of other tile portraits.
Check it out at www.tucsonportraitproject.com. The photographer was Darren Clark and the concept was created by Gary Patch.
I blogged about this project on August 21, after Tucson’s Birthday Celebration in 2009, but only one panel (the Northwest one) was up at that time. Click here to read my original blog, with details on how to locate your face.
What a great sense of community we felt by being amongst 7,000 other Tucsonans.
