We also wanted to represent all genres from our vibrant music scene. We're excited to see this line-up come together!"


West Seattle mural "The Old Mud Hole" now being restored; More donations needed to complete the work

The restoration effort for West Seattle's well known murals is continuing with the latest work being done on the mural called "The Old Mud Hole". The mural has faded over time and lately was tagged with grafitti. The mural is located on the wall near the northwest Junction parking lot on 44th SW.

Lora Radford, Exec. Dir. of the West Seattle Junction Association said, "The graffiti has been painted out, first by a mystery artist (!), and then by our muralist Bob Henry.  We’ll still need to restore the entire mural."
