Very nice article. Many of the artist at our live work spaces where excited to see so many of our friends listed in your article. It is so very exciting to be a part of Tucson Art Scene. Looking forward to the 'season'.
Thank you for a lovely piece of journalism.

Steve K, what the Furies is up here, you are supporting this, as a wash, thanks from those of us waiting on promises to be kept by using the money you are wanting to give away.
Not to worry the Don of Second Saturday and Duke of Downtown has his checkbook ready and will dig as deep as necessary to accomplish the complete transformation of Rio Nuevo to his vision.

WOW. It seems that once people decide which side they are on during any controversy the opposite side only has idiots morons bigots and racist. Chose the side wisely you are defined by others because your beliefs and opinions differ from theirs.
"I won't name others, but our prime leader was owner of a large Tucson company and when Rio Nuevo started getting real life we offered to help or become a part"
