If you are anywhere near Fourth Avenue North in the next few days, you might be able to catch muralist Shogo Ota in action as he installs Mural Project Edmonds' (MPE) latest mural.
This mural, reminiscent of the Japanese woodblock prints that are a unique Japanese art form, is in recognition of the special relationship between Edmonds and her Sister City, Hekinan, Japan.
For this project, MPE has partnered with Urban Artworks, a Seattle nonprofit that creates public art by embracing the creativity and diversity of the community and has a deep commitment to cultural and racial equity.
