Jessica Gonzales’ mural on the west wall of Wig-O-Rama, 98 E. Congress St., is 27- feet tall and 32-feet wide. The festive piece has faces peering out toward the center of Downtown and is festooned with iconic Tucson images, from monsoon clouds to a lasso. She projected her image onto the wall as her guide, though she incorporated the grid system, as well. “I felt it was important to honor the Downtown community,” says Gonzales about her design. “I live here, I work here, I went to Tucson High School. It’s about the connectedness of creative locals and the support system we have.” You can see more of her work on her Facebook page.
