gateway saguaro

Newer Older

I've lived in saguaro cactus country more than five years. It's time I took an image of one.

Erected in 2009 as part of a public art project; designed by Dirk Arnold in the style of the vintage neon signs of the 1940s-60s. The 30-ft tall sculpture is situated on the "northern gateway" of the Old Pueblo.

    Gawd how I miss the Old Pueblo.. Tucsonans are so lucky to have the 2% law that provides funding for fantastic public art projects like this. Left before this one went up, and thrilled to see it here on FLICKR.. Thank you for posting it! My favorite still has to be the giant median lizzard in Sunnyside though. It's a hoot!
