Please join Arizona Pathfinders on Thursday, March 2, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Hungry Fox located at 4637 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85711, to hear Alan Kruse tell us about “Iconic Objects, Sites, and People in Tucson,” along with lunch. The cost is $25.
We will take a look at a number of objects, sites, and people in Tucson and the story behind them. The focus will be on the history and public art of Tucson. Items include the facade of the Arizona History Museum, Maynard Dixon’s paintings, Locomotive 1673, Rattlesnake Bridge, the John Greenway statue, and Jules Flin and the origins of El Charro. The goal is to make life more enjoyable by appreciating our surroundings.
