The Backpack Project art installation of 5,500 backpacks on the University of Arizona Mall. The project, sponsored by the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona, is part of a community-wide drive held earlier this year to collect 21,000 backpacks, representing the number of "opportunity youth" (ages 16-24 not in school or working due to economic, social, or educational barriers) in Pima County.
