Punos de Tierra "Grabbing at the Earth"


Tato Caraveo's mural, just off of University and west of College behind the All Saints Catholic Newman Center, represents the hard-working Mexican families that lived very near here in the San Pablo community. They were farmers, merchants, politicians and creatives. Tempe wouldn’t be what it is today without their hard work, creativity and family values.
