Local artist Hugo Medina created this wonderful mural to honor our first responders and to shout out that all of us are in this pandemic together no matter who we are or what we do. The woman painted in the foreground was inspired by a photo (below) that appeared in our local newspaper The Arizona Republic.
The photo by Michael Chow of The Republic, depicts ICU nurse Lauren Leander as she stands in counterprotest to the people marching at the capitol to protest to the Governor's stay-at-home order. This was in April of last year. It seems we have more than our share of crazies here in Arizona and they were out in full force when the pandemic hit. Most of these people are still down at the capitol protesting an election that happened over 6 months ago. It's mind-boggling. And exhausting!
Taking part in Monday Murals.
