Garcia says he and the group visualized what they wanted the whole wall to look like, and with Silvana Salcido Esparza's blessing, paint donated Calle 16 and a good dose of improvisation and collaboration, they transformed the wall in less than a week.

He adds that Martin Moreno, who's an anchor in the local arts community and has participated in a number of local murals and youth arts engagement programs, will be back at the wall soon to add the final touches.
"These are master artists within the Mexican culture who I view as revolutionaries," says Garcia. "They came together and created art for a cause ... I think we need a lot more of that in Phoenix."
