In a city blooming with public art, the art pieces tucked away in the middle of Tucson roundabouts may not be the most eye-catching of public installation art. However, these delightful installations sprinkled around the Tucson remind us that there is natural beauty and creativity to be found in city streets.
Joshua Abrams, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Arizona and an admirer of the roundabout art said that he liked that, “It reminds you that you’re in this creative town”.
He went on to explain that he appreciated that the art pieces served as a reminder of the vibrant local culture and desert.
Abrams said that his favorite roundabout piece is the sculpture of the man with his guitar that can be found in the roundabout on North Vine Avenue and East Water Street.
“Personally, I like sitting out in Tucson in the nice afternoon summer sun and playing my guitar, and it [the roundabout] provides that culture for other people,” Abrams said.
