Beautiful mural by Clyde Thompson in Tempe.
You can find it on the back side of University Inn at Mill Ave and 9th St.
I loved reading about the artist’s back story on Tempe Tourism blog. Thompson told the blog that he painted the two-story mural without permission.
“However, the owner of the University Inn liked it enough to keep it, and also hired me to paint a mural for one of his restaurants, which is how I began doing commissioned murals and pursuing art as a career,” said Thompson on the Tempe Tourism blog.
