Brooklyn mural advances

by: Rita A. Leonard

The Brooklyn Pedestrian Bridge Mural is taking shape at S.E. 9th Avenue and Powell Boulevard.

Artist Lewton Jones has completed patches of color all along both interior walls of the overpass, and is now adding stencil image overlays - including swallows in flight and salmon frolicking in the river, interspersed with clouds of butterflies, plus newts and frogs, at the southern entrance to the walkway.

Further on, silhouettes of cats, dogs, and humans add interest, focusing on natural and transportation themes in the neighborhood.
