The Mural is Up

Walk down 23rd in front of the museum and check it out. Eddie depicted the photographs that the Colman neighbors contributed to the project.

Getting ever closer to being really done, Eddie works to tie the imagery together and adds faces to the Colman Girls (the black & white photograph contributed by Ms. Ora Adams). Also depicted in the visible panels below are the Millers, Flo Ware, Vince and the Jackson street trolley.

Today we loaded four mural panels in Meg's truck and brought them over to the museum. Above is one of the panels. Eddie will be finishing the panels once they're up on the wall. The next step is to have a community mural day on June 15 where we can hear some stories by the people depicted in the mural, watch Eddie paint and have some fun. More info about that coming soon.

By the way, here is Eddie next to Larry Gossett in a recent Seattle PI photo article about the 40th year anniversary of the Black Student Union sit in for civil rights at the UW.

I vote for including this image in the mural!

Mural Evolution

Here is a progression of the complex multi-layering that Eddie applies to the panels.

You can see here, the same panel over time as the layers are applied. This is a tremendous amount of work if you consider the size of the mural.

Greetings from the studio...three more images as the mural background colors build. One fifth of the panels should be ready for image addition this weekend. I hope to be at the neighborhood munchies at Douglass/Truth this Saturday.

Attached pictures show me 'glazing' the panels with a yellow ochre tint. The rest of this week I'll be adding about ten colors, using 'splatter', sponging, and assorted brush strokes. I'll keep the photo record emails coming with each process.

I'll be contacting reporters and documentary folks this week to set a schedule for visits to see the final stages of adding images. Hopefully I can start adding major images of Colman/Judkins people and places next Monday...God willing and the creek don't rise.

See y'all the new data and materials, hope folks have some on Saturday.

Keep the faith...Eddie Walker, universal artist
