Murals Project Update: Dometop Mural is Complete!

2 Aug

The mural on the retaining wall of the 3200 block of East L Street in Tacoma is complete!  The wall, once totally neglected and covered in moss and dirt, has been transformed into a playful and vibrant mural reflective of the adjacent community garden.  The imagery is youthful and curious in the depiction of rain water spilling down a flight of stairs and flooding on the plants and insects that lay below.  The base of the wall has been painted blue and has green grass streaming upward in which snails, potato bugs, caterpillars, butterflies, and other insects frolic and buzz with excitement.

With the help of the Dometop Neighbors; lead artists Rachael Dotson and Jeremy Gregory; and artist team members Yvette Simone, Chelsea O’Sullivan, and Natalie Oswald, the Dometop mural is sure to become a landmark in Tacoma that mirrors the curious and adventurous nature of our community.

Here’s some photos of the completed mural. But, for the best experience, go visit the site yourself.

    What a beauty! Talk about a silk purse from a sow’s ear…
    Especially like the choice of background color and the inspired cascade down the stairs.
