Day 4 for new Echo Lake mural

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Wow!  Just four days into the project, artist Andy Eccleshall has completed enough of the new Echo Lake mural that passers-by on NE 205th are already amazed and delighted.

From the sky and treetops to the hints of the historic activities in the lake, the new mural is quickly taking shape. Having cleaned and primed the wall, Eccleshall is now applying a multitude of acrylic hues to create this fresh view of the neighborhood.

When complete, the image will not only honor the past but also acknowledge the ever-changing environment in Shoreline. Thanks to good weather and his vast experience, Eccleshall of The Mural Works expects to complete the artwork next week.

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.

The mural is nice. That said, Shoreline needs no public art fund, no neighborhood mini-grants, and no business mini-grants. The city's prostitutes and drug dealers need no personal boulevard, the developers need no government subsidy, and the Shoreline City Council and staff need no bronze monuments in every park and public building. What the city does need are sidewalks, night lighting on the American flag at Saltwater Park, zoning stability, and a transparent, fiscally responsible government.
