This piece reflects a part of the history behind non-indigenous people migrating westward in the U.S. The building portrayed is a Spanish style mission church located several miles South of Tucson, AZ. The church was built in 1797 by foreign missionaries and is the oldest European-built structure in the region. It represents one of four types of structures that were first built by foreign settlers when colonization began: pubs, prisons, water towers and places of worship.
