Progress has continued on the mural at the retaining wall of the 3200 block of East L Street in Tacoma. The wall, once covered in moss and dirt, underwent pressure washing a few weeks back to remove the debris. Community members with the Dometop Neighborhood Alliance volunteered time to prime the wall and now the mural painting has begun. The overall design pulls inspiration from the nearby community garden, and will be studded with strawberries and garden creatures.
So far, the base of the wall has been painted blue with green grass streaming upward. Lead artists Rachael Dotson and Jeremy Gregory, and artist team Yvette Simone, Chelsea O’Sullivan, and Natalie Oswald are pushing full steam ahead and it should be completed in the next few weeks!
Here are some pictures of the in-progress work:
