West Seattle outdoor art: Youngstown mural painting, starting today

Stopped by Youngstown Cultural Arts Center at midday to check on the progress of this year’s mural project – and we discovered the young artists are officially starting work on the mural today! They actually have been working on the 210-foot retaining wall along Delridge for a while now, but first job was to get it primed, and now that that’s done, it’s mural-painting time. That’ll take about two weeks – the grand unveiling is planned for August 14th. As noted here last month, this is part of the same city-funded summertime program that resulted in more than a dozen mini-murals on signal boxes along Delridge last year. The youth are working with professional artists, and according to this online update, they welcome community volunteers, too.

    Driving by and seeing the young folks out there doing something positive to the walls rather than graffiti makes me feel great about them!!!!
    GOOD job gals & guys…Keep up the good work!
    West Seattle appreciates your artistic additions to the area that are not graffiti.
