(TUCSON, AZ –KOLD)-Mosaic murals are popping up near the University of Arizona to beautify the streets and send a message of hope to passersby.The newest mural is moving into 4th Avenue and is being unveiled at the Winsett Stage with a reception at 4pm to 6pm on Friday. Jeannette Packard, the founder of Ben's Bells was struck with the idea of the "Kindness Corridor" while visiting Philadelphia. During her trip Packard was overcome by the city's beautiful murals and teamed up with the artist Isaiah Zagar. Zagar came to Tucson and taught his mosaic technique to local artists. The artists worked with adults in Tucson Unified School District's Community Transition Program and other volunteers to create the masterpieces.

There are four so far.  You can find them at University and Tyndal , Park and University and now 4th Avenue.

Packard already has plans for more mural projects near the University. If you're interested in seeing a mural go up near you in the downtown/University area, go to Ben's Bell's website.
