FOLLOWUP: One West Seattle Junction mural repaired; restoration imminent for another

Two updates on the murals in the West Seattle Junction:

Junction Association executive director Lora Radford sent that photo with word that the tagging damage done to that mural, “The Old Mud Hole” (south side of the 44th/Alaska lot), has been repaired by muralist Bob Henry. It still is in need of restoration, but the repair work is a band-aid, for now. Meantime, Radford adds, Henry starts work tomorrow on the next one to be restored, the West Seattle Ferries mural on the west side of the building at the southwest corner oF California and Alaska.

Crowdfunding to cover the cost of restoration continues, and Radford says every bit helps – through June 30th, there’s a bonus for donations of $50 or more, inscribed mural-fundraiser keychains. Here’s where to donate.

    These murals are really neat! The video on the donation page is compelling.

    I really love these murals.  Such great additions to the neighborhood(s).  Thanks to all who maintain them.

    The taggers who ruin public art like this should be given enhanced sentences, and forced to clean graffiti all over the city for their work release. Tagging has become prolific thanks to social media, with these spoiled little weasels posting their exploits on Instagram under hashtages like #seattlegraffiti  

Sorry, comment time is over.
