Underpass Mural Painting Process in Longmont, CO

Underpass Mural Painting Process in Longmont, CO

October 2018 gave me two weeks of nice weather to work on an underpass mural. A busy bike pass and pedestrian tunnel under Hover street in Longmont, CO.

The project was a part of the City of Longmont’s and the Police departments graffiti prevention program.

While painting the mural a lot of people thanked me hugely for making the tunnel nicer and safer.

The mural was covered with an anti-graffiti coating, cameras and lights fixtures were installed to prevent future vandalism.

The design for this mural was chosen by the art committee consisting of the city art panel, community members and activists.
