Mural painted 3/25/2017 by team MAC (Mary, Chris, Ashley)

"Musical Ostrich" is a mural on a major street in Chandler, AZ.  The
idea was to promote safety at this busy crosswalk on Arizona Avenue while
giving a nod to the heritage and present day interests of downtown Chandler.
The design has some significance to Chandler.  Each year, Chandler hosts the Ostrich Festival. 
It's a unique experience!  There are ostrich races and camel races (with riders), food trucks
 and plenty of vendors.  The Jazz Festival is another big event.  We combined the
two ideas in our design and presented it (along with five other designs) to the city.
We were awarded one of four designs accepted for the project.
Volunteers helped to paint the design.  It was a fun day!  The street was closed for
another great event, the BBQ and Beer Fest.  Fun, fun, fun!  

I dug up a photo taken in 2011 at the Ostrich Fest. 
Debbie W, me, and Mary H.  Fun times!
