If you have driven past the Shoreline Pool in the past thirty days, you will have seen the new, colorful mural on the side of the building.

Completed mid-July, it is the work of Shoreline mural artist Sara Snedeker. Sara is also responsible for the octopus in the parking lot at Sears at the site of the Shoreline Farmers Market. (see previous article)

The City of Shoreline partnered with the Artquake Collective to design a mural that captures the spirit of a community pool while engaging the imagination.

Something special about this mural is that part of the work was done by Shorecrest students.

Sara says,
"I've been working with students on murals for a few years now. One student in particular has helped on nearly every mural I've created in shoreline (Dayana Fairchild). The students love painting and told their friends. Through word of mouth roughly eight students helped complete the pool."
