|In 2016 I was chosen by Sound Transit, the City of Tacoma, and
community representatives to create a mural for the Tacoma Trestle
replacement program. I created a painting in my studio that is now being
enlarged using a porcelain enamel on steel printing process to fit the
53 foot x 11 foot wall under the new trestle. The trestle is scheduled to be completed late this year.
Below are the images and info that relate to my portion of the project.
(The complete story of the trestle replacement can be found here: Tacoma Trestle Project)
"In keeping with the STart program, Sound Transit has commissioned artwork for the East G Street crossing. A mural was chosen as the preferred way to incorporate visible artwork to pedestrians, which will be placed on the west side of the trestle underpass. This will help to create a strong connection to the Freighthouse Square building next to the mural area. Sound Transit collaborated with the community and Tacoma Art Program to select an artist; the group chose locally based painter Jeremy Mangan who is known for his earthy landscape and object-focused portrait work."
