community artist & leader
Tucson community artist, leader, and educator Carlos Valenzuela has agreed to be the mosaic artist for the Most Sacred Heart of the Barrio sculpture. Carlos, a Mexican and Indigenous Tucsonan has worked on numerous mosaic murals in south Tucson. Many of these murals were made in collaboration with students in the Las Artes program, a program which helped young people prepare for GEDs through participation in community art projects.
We are elated to have this talented and integral community leader collaborate on this project.
