Not every new Capitol Hill mural is stuck in limbo. Work began in the parking lot behind Broadway and Union’s Gilda’s Club this Labor Day weekend on a new creation set to be part of Capitol Hill’s proud tradition of amazing murals. Here’s the invite to check out the work in progress from Gilda’s posted to the CHS Calendar:
Gilda’s Club Seattle is excited to announce that local artists, Game Not Fame, will be painting a mural on the North side of our building over Labor Day weekend and the weekend to follow. Stop by to check out the progress and to show your support for the artists who have volunteered their time to improve our neighborhood.
Gilda’s Club, which provides community and services to families living with cancer, undertook the project in an attempt to end the tagging that has persisted on the building walls surrounding the lot operated by Diamond Parking.
CHS was there Saturday to check out the first markings by the Game Not Fame crew and we’ve swung back through a few times over the weekend to check out the progress. More images from the wall, below.
Here are a few more Hill murals we’ve covered in recent years:
