WEST SEATTLE ART: New mural celebrating history

(WSB photo)

Thanks to Joey for the tip – a new mural in progress on the west-facing upper wall at Courtesy Tire in The Junction. We went over to check it out and discovered that the artist is prolific West Seattle-based muralist Desmond Hansen. He was finishing up for the day when we stopped by, but told us the mural will also include portraits, including the business’s founder. (It’s been open for more than half a century.)

    This is so cool.  Desmond is a gift to West Seattle what a talent he has.  Looking forward to seeing this on my next drive down the ave.

    Looking good! Hear an interview with Desmond in the “Street Art Intersections” episode of All Ways West Seattle podcast: https://bit.ly/3hJUvkY

    Wonderful! I’ve been going to Courtesy Tire for probably around 30 years. I’ve always considered them just the greatest people to do business with. This just reinforces that opinion. Thank you for this.
