At 180 feet, the newly dedicated Kenmore mural is the largest in King county and possibly in Washington state. It covers the entire west-facing exterior wall of the St. Vincent de Paul building at 7304 Bothell Way in Kenmore.
The "living history" mural was created by artists A. Gaul Culley and Staci Adman to celebrate the lives and experiences of the builders and stewards of Kenmore.
The ribbon cutting and dedication were held on Monday, September 5 at the Kenmore Community Club. The artists shared some of the cultural stories that inspired the images that make up the mural.
This mural is a significant contribution to Kenmore's 20 year vision of a 'community that: is inclusive and family friendly, with a small town feeling that fosters a sense of belonging and pride and supports local arts, culture and history.'
The scenes show places, activities, and businesses (past and present) which are part of the fabric of life in Kenmore.
