This mural is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the City of Seattle, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. It is also receiving contributions from the non-profit, Seattle Mural Project, and the Sorrento Hotel. This mural would also not be possible without a generous donation of paint from Miller Paint – An employee owned, northwest based paint company. If you need any paint, please visit them at one of their many northwest locations.
Special thanks to Hotel Sorrento – A Seattle treasure. Since 1909 Hotel Sorrento has provided immaculate accommodations, top notch food and amazing service. http://hotelsorrento.com/
