Description

The enormous graphic installation was inspired by a Navajo chant and is an homage to the major flora and fauna of the NW Bioregion. In 2012 the design was enhanced with more contrast, clarity and resiliency. The mural is a point of interest and gathering since its inception. Local restaurants donated pizza and other snacks, and neighbors came up with lovely potluck dishes. In 2014 a third coat was added to the painting. The community enjoys repainting and renewing the connections made on painting days past and looks forward to new connections.
