Tucson muralist Joe Pagac wanted to venture into art that was interactive and, literally, accessible to everyone. Using the ubiquitous javelina as a model, Joe placed one in the Captain’s seat of a tandem waiting for his stoker. Folks love to pose on the rear saddle with Javier and will pet him for good luck on their rides.

Located on the Rillito Loop Trail, at the intersection with the Mountain Avenue Bridge. After saying hola to Javier, you can relax at the nearby shops of St. Philips Plaza.
