City Paint Phoenix 23 – “No More Stolen Sisters”

It’s been a while since I shared any street art findings from Phoenix….

Wednesday morning before work…driving up and down Roosevelt Row and the many feeder streets that lead to and from the artsy neighborhood and its surround…quiet and COVID-near-empty streets.

It had been a while since I had driven this particular alleyway…who knew…at The Churchill in Phoenix.

It’s not just a painting…click on the below links to read more….

  2. Awesome (and sad) mural.

    More grief and suffering I wasn’t aware of. Those are sobering articles and statistics.

    . . . the world looks bleaker with every passing day.

    • By the way, I came across this map:

      In case you’re ever in Houston.

      I wonder if every city has something like this?

      • That’s great, Emilio…thank you…in case I ever get to Houston!

        I have seen something similar to this in a local publication “Phoenix New Times,” but it has usually been after the somewhat annual Phoenix Paint event.

      • You are welcome . . . and it’s in case I ever get to Houston, too.

  3. I’ve been reading about the problems with indigenous women having such a high rate of being murdered, going missing, etc. and people not doing much about it, so it’s good to see this street art. Thanks, Scott.

    • A quick Google search for MMIW in Arizona highlights a law passed in 2019 that will form a committee to research, collect data, and then to publish their findings, promote awareness, etc…. I hope all of that actually accomplishes something more than just looking at the subject.

    • It seems there’s plenty to read, Erica….

  5. Like Lynn, I’ve been aware of this issue… what a beautiful and powerful mural addressing it. Far too many lives thought to be disposable it seems.

    Thanks for posting this!!! Very much appreciated.

    • Yes, it is a beautiful, poignant mural…and yes, especially, it seems that their lives are thought to be disposable…what a thought….
