THE KENMORE MURAL AT ST. VINCENT de PAUL
The Kenmore-St. Vincent Mural celebrates and tells the story of the cultural history of Kenmore. Our hope is that the mural will deepen the community’s sense of place. We also hope it will contribute to Kenmore’s 20-year vision of “a community that is inclusive and family friendly, with a small town feeling that fosters a sense of belonging and pride and supports local arts, culture and history.
The City of Kenmore and St. Vincent de Paul launched this project idea in the spring of 2015 and began working with the artists and other partners in the fall and winter of 2015-2016.Painting the mural had a May 1, 2016 start date with completion slated for Sept. 1, 2016 with a major “mural celebration” scheduled for Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 5, 2016.
