“I am Tucson” Mural

As Ben’s Bells launches into our 20th year, one of our goals is to increase the visual representations of kindness in our community. To help accomplish this, we will be re-creating the iconic “I am Tucson” Mural. The original mural was created in 2012 by hundreds of local volunteers making thousands of personalized tiles that represented the culture of Tucson. Due to downtown expansion, the mural was sadly destroyed in 2019.

Through the generosity of the Tucson Convention Center (TCC), the new mural will be installed prominently at the front entrance of the TCC in fall of 2022. The new “I am Tucson” Mural will once again be created with the help of our community volunteers and their commitment to kindness.

“I am Tucson” Mural Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Monday, December 5th at 4:00pm

Tucson Convention Center . 260 S. Church Ave. Tucson, AZ 85701
The mural is located on the east-facing wall by the main ticket window.

Come together to celebrate kindness in our community at the “I am Tucson” Mural Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Sponsorship tiles will be unveiled and light refreshments will be available.


Each sponsorship level will receive a specially sized tile featuring your company name that works as a border to surround the 30 ft. by 10 ft. mural. Investing in the “I Am Tucson” Mural will ensure thousands of visitors will view your company name annually. Murals last a minimum of 10-15 years, meaning your company name will be seen by millions of individuals over the life of the mural.
