Dunbar Springs looks very cool and I want to head south to Tucson to check it out… there are so many groovy spots included in the slideshow like, 801 Gallery, The Tasteful Kitchen and The Red Barn Theater (honestly, the place had me when I saw that “How to Talk Minnesotan” is currently playing this month).
Here’s what the digital version of The Gray Lady said about Dunbar Springs:
People don’t just live in Dunbar Spring, they nest. In the Tucson neighborhood just north of downtown, yards bristle with salvaged scrap metal, along with solar panels and water harvesting tubes. Many houses resemble art installations. Dunbar Spring was Tucson’s first black neighborhood; it is named after two prominent citizens: the African-American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar and the Swiss-born John Spring, who became Arizona’s first bilingual public-school teacher in 1872. Today, it is a haven for artists, environmentalists and local foods activists.
