This project for the City of Renton was what public art is all about. It was such a treat to work on a mural dedicated to the local legend, Boone Kirkman. I got to meet and interview Boone, experience the joy that the project brought to folks that have been in Renton for generations, and celebrate with them when it was all said and done.
Boone Kirkman was a professional heavyweight boxer fifty years ago. The mural references his illustrious career, while also speaking to many other aspects of his life in Renton.
