See Scripture's powerful mural: In front of the new Plant Base Cafe, spanning the length of a whole stucco wall there is a heartfelt mural painstakingly done, a significant piece of art that pays tribute to Deanna Autumn Leaf Suazo and meditates on the emotional challenges of grief and cultural responsibility. 

"For a town that prides itself as an art community, there’s a lack of murals and public forms of art.  Plenty of thought has gone into the work commissioned by restaurant owner Frankie V, and with approval from members of Taos Pueblo. The work is a service to friends and family who requested a fitting artistic ode," writes Jeans Pineda in this week's Tempo. See the mural at 106 Des Georges Pl, in the Historic District.
