Kenmore mural by A. Gaul Culley and Staci Adman

The public is invited to a special exhibit featuring highlights of the Kenmore Mural Project at St. Vincent de Paul. The event will open Friday evening, August 19, at the Arts of Kenmore Gallery in the Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave NE.

The reception begins at 6:30pm with a presentation by KMP artists A. Gaul Culley and Staci Adman at 7:00pm. These award winning artists will share cultural stories that inspired images that make up the mural.

The mural is located on the west-facing wall of the St. Vincent de Paul building and is 188ft long by 12 feet tall.

“It is considered to be the longest mural in King County, and one of the longest murals in the state of Washington. 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,” according to A. Gaul Culley and Staci Adman.

A dedication ceremony is also scheduled for September 5 at 11am at the mural site.

The KMP gallery event is the latest in a series of five exhibits mounted throughout the year by the Arts of Kenmore. These exhibits are made possible with support from the City of Kenmore, 4Culture, and AOK Supporters. The KMP exhibit will remain on display through September 29.

The mission of the Arts of Kenmore, an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, is to promote the arts in the Kenmore community. Among other initiatives, AOK produces the annual Kenmore Art Show at Bastyr, provides grants for art projects at six public schools in the city and is working to facilitate the creation of public art work in the Kenmore area.
