Story & Photos by Scott Schaefer
Work is progressing nicely on Burien’s new Mural Project on the side of the Dollar Tree store on 4th Ave SW, near the City Hall/Library building.
The mural, by Artist Augustina Droze (read our previous coverage here), appeared to be about one-third done as of Thursday afternoon, July 26 when we dropped by to check in. Helping Droze Thursday were Intern Debbie Pitzer of Federal Way, along with Volunteer Artists Vivian Yamakoshi and Irene H. Kuniyuki, both from Seattle.
MEET THE ARTIST SATURDAY, AUG. 4
The City of Burien will be holding a community ‘Meet and Greet’ with Mural Artist Augustina Droze from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4 at the Dollar Tree back parking lot.
“Come by to learn more about the mural process, have some cake provided by the Dollar Tree, find your own creativity with a hands-on art project, and meet Bucky the Dollar Tree Mascot!” reads an announcement.
Funded by the City of Burien 1% for Art Fund, the aim of the new mural is to “bring a new focal point to our city. The work is being created by Augustina and a fabulous group of community volunteers.”
The Burien Dollar Tree Back Parking Lot is located at 4th & 151st SW.
Event is weather permitting.
