Lake City Murals

The World is Our Canvas

Do you know who painted those colorful murals around the Lake City Community Center? At the request of the community, and thanks in large part to efforts spearheaded by Chuck Dickey – a Lake City resident, volunteer, community advocate, and Chamber and Lion’s Club member – the Lake City Mural Arts Project employed 30+ Seattle Community Court defendants doing court-ordered community service to design and produce these beautiful public artworks in late 2009. The theme of the mural facing Albert Davis Park reflects the history and character of Lake City.

The next time you stroll by, take a moment to pause, look closely, and appreciate the vision, care, and elbow grease given by so many people.
