Update: Due to rain and wet pavement on Sunday, the Stone Avenue Street Painting has been re-scheduled to Friday, October 1, from 3:30 p.m. until dark.
Looks like painting streets is an idea that has taken hold of imaginations in North Seattle. A couple of months ago, there was only one painted street in Seattle, a ladybug at 49th and Burke. Last month the bug got some company, a sea turtle at 41st and Interlake.
This weekend, dozens of neighbors will take to the street at Stone Ave N between N 80th St and Green Lake Drive N, next to Bethany Community Church and across the street from Daniel Bagley Elementary School with paintbrushes in hand. By the end of Sunday, the street will look like this:
The block will be closed to traffic from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday to prepare the street and paint the design by Andrea Moon, called “water swirls.” Our sister site My Green Lake has more information on the painting and will cover the story this weekend.Tweet
