Seen the signal-box art? Thank young Youngstown artists Friday

August 29, 2013 at 6:17 pm | In Delridge, West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 14 Comments

The octopus at Delridge/Holden is just one of many mini-murals you might have noticed in recent weeks on 12 signal boxes in the area (between Andover and Henderson) – and they’re all thanks to the youth artists of WRAP, the Work Readiness Art Program, which wraps up tomorrow at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. According to this update from the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association website, the murals are all sea life-inspired. Tomorrow (Friday) afternoon, you can thank some of the artists – and lead artist Andrew Morrison, who’s been working with them – during a “culminating event” at 2 pm in the theater at Youngstown (4408 Delridge Way SW), featuring refreshments, a slideshow of the murals, and a visit to one nearby.

  2. Cool. In Boise the city pays artists for decorating utility boxes, I always thought it would be cool if Seattle would do that.
