Halfway there! Youngstown Cultural Arts Center mural update

August 6, 2014 at 11:51 am | In Delridge, West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 7 Comments

Just stopped by the mural project outside Youngstown Cultural Arts Center for a quick update. We reported last week on the start of work on what was a blank 200-foot wall along Delridge Way SW beneath the center’s parking lot, with participants in a summer arts-jobs program, same one that led to the signal-box mini-murals last year. This mural is still scheduled for completion and “unveiling” one week from tomorrow; its features so far include not just Northwest beauty like water and mountains but also a hint of the nearby maritime industry (the iconic red cranes).

  1. LOVE the signal-box murals, especially the octopus on Holden. Can’t wait to see this one completed!

  4. I love all the artwork it is so colorful and cheerful especially on the once gloomy wall. My kids love the fish artwork on the box by the park. Great work and such a welcome improvement to the neighborhood.

  7. I wish someone would consider doing a mural along the wall of Madison Middle school. It’s a big ugly blank wall and having a school generated mural would really liven up the neighborhood and get kids more involved in their community
