I drove through downtown Greenwood late this morning and happened to see the new mural being installed in front of the arson site next to Taproot Theatre. As soon as they were done, they covered it in black plastic to prepare for tomorrow’s unveiling at 11 a.m.
The mural features a phoenix rising from the fire (those flames you see on the far right), a Greenwood firefighter rescuing a PAWS Cat City cat during the Oct. 23 arson, muscle cars from the Greenwood Car Show, and other iconic neighborhood images.
Three artists from Seattle Mural Art created the mural: Zachary Bohnenkamp, Kevin “Sensei23″ Sullivan, and John Osgood. We’ll bring you a full report after tomorrow’s unveiling.
And we just heard from Cindy Potter, one of the trustees of the Greenwood Fire Relief Fund, who reports the relief fund has now collected more than $14,000 for the businesses affected by the string of arsons.
