Taking La Galeria to the Streets

This week, we sat down with co-founder and co-owner, Melissa Brown-Dominguez, of Galeria Mitotera to talk about what engages people and empowers artists and youth in Tucson. Galeria Mitotera reclaims the streets when their gallery spills out onto their sidewalks, inviting anyone who’s out and about to stop by. Plus, tune into to the mini-episode to hear about longstanding hot dog and taqueria rivalries all in serious, but good fun.

Galeria Mitotera is a space to celebrate our Chicanx culture, uplift artists of color in the community and create a safe space for community members and artists to inspire one another through art and togetherness.

Pedaling the Pueblo is created by Living Streets Alliance and powered by the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility. We deliver you this mini-program and podcast connecting you to bicycle events and updates in Tucson. We invite city professionals, grassroots organizers, and storytellers to share what they’re working on, what’s exciting in the bicycling ecosystem, and how more people can ditch their cars for better, more equitable biking experiences.

We want to talk about what’s fresh and relevant in Tucson, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at [email protected]. You can also reach out to us on our Facebook page.
