It’s been over six months since I shared an installment of the street-art or building murals that I’ve encountered in the greater Phoenix area. I suppose it was good timing, then, that something caught my eye the other morning as I was out in the field for work…at 137 E University Drive in Mesa…. The address was not on my itinerary for places to visit, but I couldn’t drive past without stopping to make a few images.
A previously unseen (by me) mural glowing invitingly on the side of the road…on the side of the wall at Mesa’s United Way building, actually. While I thought the deeper meaning of the mural might have something to do with enriching the lives of Mesa’s children, families, etc., it was actually sponsored by one of the local power companies, Salt River Project.

As far as the artist is concerned, I had seen one of his other murals on the backside of a coffee shop in Phoenix, but had not yet visited it to make any photos. Click on his highlighted name to learn more about Addison Karl, a multi-media artist from Munich who has murals all over the world.

As always, thanks for visiting and spending a few minutes of your day with me.
