another corner on the way to work

Another fortuitous traffic light stop!  Mind you, this mural is only about a hundred yards from my apartment, so I could very easily have walked there rather than grabbing my camera on the fly.  It's wrapped around the half-moon window of a Mexican restaurant - Torero, the oldest Mexican restaurant in Durham - and has some other fine moments (for a future occasion ...) just up the street. It celebrates the Latino community here; it was painted in 2013 by Duke students, high school students, some visiting artists from the Dominican Republic, and under the overall guidance of Mexican-American, California based, guest artist Inocente Izucar - and it's part of Duke's TWO-WAY BRIDGES | PUENTES DE DOBLE VIA project, connecting "Duke, Durham and the Americas".
