Echo Lake Mural complete

Echo Lake mural photo by artist Andy Eccleshall


What a difference two weeks make! Artist Andy Eccleshall has completed the new Echo Lake mural on NE 205th and 1st Ave NE in two weeks as promised, thanks in part to great weather and coffee runs from the neighborhood mural crew.

Although the artwork is across the street from Lake Ballinger, the historic sign on the mural makes it clear that the painted image is Echo Lake. With people, places and things depicted in the gorgeous natural environment, this artwork should be a neighborhood icon for years to come.  

The new mural is funded through a City of Shoreline Neighborhood Mini-grant to the Echo Lake Neighborhood Association and the City’s 1% for Public Art Fund.

To see other examples of Andy’s work or to contact him about a mural for your neighborhood or business, go to his website: The Mural Works.

For more information contact Ros Bird, Public Art Coordinator.

Great Mural. Very realistic. Any wagers on how long before someone (a drunk ?) runs into the mural ?

What a contrast to the (embarrassing) Walter Keene-inspired mural we had to endure for so many years. Children are very important to the community, but for a gateway to Shoreline, let's show the world the beauty of our natural setting.
