About the mural at the Shoreline WA Police Station

Sharon Cook of the Shoreline Police Department sent me the following information about this painting outstide of the Police Station:

About 10 years ago, King County had work force training programs for disadvantaged high school students. The program ran each summer and students were placed in various positions throughout the County. The County provided a supervisor and the students had the opportunity to learn various skills. The City of Shoreline had a team of about 10 students who interviewed City staff, researched our area and did these paintings. The folk art paintings were done on sheets of plywood. Several were placed at City Hall in the basement in the window wells. The painting at the police department is the only one actually done outside and then the bench in front of the painting was done by a group of Eagle Scouts (senior boy scouts).

Pretty cool huh?
