The Sea Walls “Artists for Oceans” Mural Festival concluded on September 19 after ten days of events. The initiative was intended to draw awareness to rising sea levels and encourage stewardship of our oceans. In the span of a barely a week, 15 blank walls on buildings spread out across the city were transformed into colorful murals that will be with the city for decades.

The event was coordinated by the PangeaSeed nonprofit and supported locally by The Public Market/Oxford Properties, Stasher Bagsthe Kenneth Rainin FoundationDavlin Coatings and LUSH Natural Cosmetics amongst others.

The event was produced and directed by local artists Alexandra Underwood & Joey Rose.

“After almost two years of planning & preparation, Joey and I are beyond thrilled to see these murals come to life,” Underwood provided through email. “It’s been so amazing to see the amount of community support that we’ve had – from the amount of people that showed up to our public events, the amazing volunteer support, the students who helped paint at Emery High, to people we’ve met on the streets excited about these ‘new’ walls. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother week & more supportive community. I hope that people continue to love these murals and feel empowered to protect both our town & our Environment!”

  1. Beautiful artwork. The first city approved mural was one that depicted citizens in the city, which included the owners of the Ranch House, Gene Yee and his wife. It was on Doyle Street across from the mini park. And of course there was what referred to as graffiti on the buildings along the SP mainline, which were some very artistic images.
