Arnada street mural gets a fresh coat of paint



Arnada — About 20 neighbors worked together Aug. 13 to refresh the Arnada street mural, at D and 22nd streets. Residents spent the day repainting the mural and sharing in a potluck lunch. The Arnada mural was the first street mural in Vancouver designed to slow traffic. The concept worked well when the mural was first installed but as it fades, its impact fades as well, said Russ Pasco, vice chair of the neighborhood association. Pasco said he can see the mural from his second-story window. This is the third time the mural has been repainted since it was first created in 2008. Each time it gets renewed, the mural’s effectiveness is renewed, as well.
