New mural for Echo Lake neighborhood in July

In July a new mural will be painted on the large concrete wall in the Echo Lake neighborhood.  

The Echo Lake Neighborhood Association (ELNA) has been planning for this major project for several years and has now received a City of Shoreline Neighborhood Mini-grant to help make it happen.

Because the wall is along SR 104 (NE 205th St) at 1st Ave NE with thousands of commuters passing by each day, the Park Board also approved some 1% for Public Art funding for the project.

Highly regarded Edmonds muralist, Andy Eccleshall / The Mural Works, was selected from 18 applicants to design and produce the artwork. Selection Panel members were impressed with his ability to paint versatile subject matter in a variety of styles and his willingness to listen to the stakeholders to generate design ideas.

Eccleshall’s initial concept design was presented to the ELNA and Shoreline Park Board for input.  His latest draft shows the image superimposed on the wall.

Further comments will be accepted through June 11th by email.  Final design will be presented to the Park Board on June 27th.  

Eccleshall is excited to work with the community to generate a new mural that will be viewed and celebrated for many years. He plans to start working on the wall in July, weather permitting, and expects the process to take about ten days.  

For more information about the project email Ros Bird, Public Art, City of Shoreline.
