Mural, mural on the wall—and across the nation
A number of murals have recently been popping up across the country including one of the late Robin Williams as Mork with the word “smile” on it. Unveiled by street artists on Wednesday, September 3, the mural can now be seen on the side of a restaurant at East 13th Avenue and Grant Street in Boulder, Colorado—the city where “Mork and Mindy” took place.
On September 5 in California, artist Mario Uribe installed a temporary mural entitled “Mindfullness” in honor of Andy Lopez, a 13-year-old who was shot and killed three miles away by a Sonoma County sheriff’s deputy in 2013.
A patriotic mural by Sean Elliott and Bob Steen was also unveiled on Friday, September 5. The work honoring American veterans is located in the entry way of Moundbuilders VFW Post 1060 in Newark, New Jersey.
The Spokane Arts Mural Project sponsored by Rotary 21, Downtown Spokane Partnership and Miller Paint commissioned artists Cain Benson, Todd Benson, Erin Mielcarek, Eric-Alain Parker, Ellen Picken, Tom Quinn, and Lisa Soranaka to create five murals on various underpasses throughout Spokane, Washington in an effort to beautify the city.
