The Greenwood-Phinney Chamber in conjunction with Bherd Studios will be unveiling a new mural for our neighborhood as part of the Art Up kick-off on August 9th. Much anecdotal evidence has been shared over the last few months from various sources including the City of Seattle Graffiti Prevention department that murals are hit less than blank walls and help establish an example of a positive outlet for youth vandals. In addition, Art Up plans to introduce the program to the local Jr. High and High School in the next month and a half by meeting with their school principles.
More information to come on the mural celebration.
City of Seattle crew will be back in our neighborhood painting out tagging and cleaning on August 6th. If you see them come through, please stop and thank them for their help.
