The Perfection Plumbing mural on South Park Avenue, created by Antonio Pazos and a group of Tucson High School students. This mural, now painted out, presented a wonderful collection of images of Mexicano and Chicano identity. Aztec pyramids, revolutionary soldiers, low rider cars, pachucos, and more all flank a central figure of the Virgin of Guadalupe in a truly baroque assemblage.

This is part of a huge mural decorating the wall around a public electric installation on South 10th Avenue. It features a cosmic serpent, the Mexican flag, and two Yaqui Indian ritual performers of the type that dance at local ceremonies. Barrio Libre ("free neighborhood") is the name of the local southside neighborhood.
