From our friends at WABI Burien:

Burien’s skyline is graced by a new bouquet!

Let’s Walk-n-Talk this Sunday, May 5, and stroll by the new DESC Bloomside mural, facing west toward the afternoon sun. The mural was designed by Burien resident, Angelina Villaloboswho wrote:

“I am the artist / designer of the mural and I am also a Burien resident. Kathleen (Warren) and Lina (Cholewinski) are OverallCreative and they installed the mural on behalf of DESC and I, and are both incredible. 

“The names on the mural (see detail photo) are dedications to 3 beautiful people that have passed on. Laurie was my boisterous momma, Maria my grandma who raised me, and Ana a dear friend we tragically lost. Since this mural is the largest one to date, I wanted them to be a part of it in some capacity, especially in the light of what DESC, Bloomside, and affordable/ compassionate housing represents. All of them would be so incredibly proud of me and this project.
