Dancing the Mural /Color the Mural was a two-year community based multidisciplinary arts project that took place in the City of South Tucson, 2013-2015.

A brain child of Yvonne Montoya, Color the mural included 264 community members who voted on the theme and design of the mural, 290 community painters from ages 0-88 , and over 30 visual and performing artists, arts administrators, community members, donors, and volunteers worked on the project.

 

Under Yvonne’s direction, choreographers created seven new pieces of choreography inspired by the images of the mural.
