Tucson, Arizona – The Tucson Roadrunners, owned and operated by the Arizona Coyotes, are proud to introduce local artist Alejandra Trujillo who has been selected to paint a Roadrunners inspired mural at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson on 3155 East Grant Road.
In coordination with the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA), the Roadrunners were introduced to Trujillo who has completed dozens of murals in Southern Arizona. Tucson is home to hundreds of gorgeous murals that can seen all throughout town displaying the area’s culture, desert and colorful beauty.
“It is our pleasure to welcome Alejandra aboard to create what will be a beautiful site for everyone driving down Grant Road in Tucson with another great mural for our city,” said Roadrunners President Bob Hoffman. “She is very talented and personifies Southern Arizona. Her plan for the mural will excite everyone involved and continue to show how great hockey in the desert really is.”
As part of a larger beautification project for the Boys & Girls Clubs campus with several community partners, the mural will be painted on a storage container next to the William J Dawson DEK Hockey Rink at the club that was unveiled by the Roadrunners in 2018.
The project will be completed in the next several weeks and will also include the assistance of local students: including members of the Boys & Girls Clubs.
