Phoenix is undergoing a beautification process. That's what Kate Saunders, Phoenix Hostel & Cultural Center's volunteer coordinator, calls it.

"There's more commissioned art work, more bright colors and simple figures," Saunders says regarding the current state of Phoenix's ever-changing mural scene. That constant change inspired Saunders to plan and lead a mural tour on Sunday, May 26.

It's the second walking mural tour the Hostel has put on -- the first was in conjunction with Art Detour 25 earlier this year -- and it comprises 12 stops along a one-mile path starting in the Garfield Neighborhood at the hostel and ending at the Water Writes mural (pictured above) on the south wall of Valley Youth Theatre. Featured art ranges from massive wall-coverings to smaller stencil pieces.
