Ephemeral Community Art Project
This August come add your creativity to a new mural project along the Cross Kirkland Corridor! The Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission recently selected creative duo Jake “DKoy” Wagoner and Mike Lucero to install a large format mural, which is entitled “What is…” The mural will be located where the CKC runs underneath 85th Street.

During the mural’s installation from August 2 through 16, community members will be invited to express their thoughts in response to prompts such as: What is love? What is happiness? What is beauty? These written responses will become a part of the final artwork.

The duo was selected during an artist call to create an ephemeral, community art project that celebrated the CKC, reflected Kirkland as a community and engaged the community throughout the project. During the two week installation event, the community and trail users are invited to stop by the mural and engage with the artists. Painting supplies will be available for people to add their words to the prompts on the mural.

The mural is made possible with funding from 4Culture and will be officially unveiled at the September 9 “Crossing Kirkland” event.
