TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local artist needs your help to complete his vision of painting the largest mural in all of Tucson.

Over the past decade, Joe Pagac has been working to beautify our city with his wall artwork. He just completed a colorful mural on the TEP substation building at the corner of Prince and Mountain.

Now, he has set his sights on the blank wall of the Epic Rides building near downtown. He hopes to paint a Sonoran cycling style mural if he can raise enough money for supplies.

Pagac said the mural will be more than 4,000 square feet and will require a cherry picker to reach the top.

“I think it’d be really nice to kind of promote Tucson as a cycling community, promote our Sonoran desert, promote our cowboy heritage and Mexican heritage, all of that. I’ve tried to corporate it all in this mural and make it really colorful and fun for people of all ages,” Pagac said.

He said the murals also help cut down on graffiti but he still needs to raise $10 thousand dollars to make it happen. If you’re interesting in donating click here.
