New mural for Beavers Market

Mural Beavers Day 1

Work began today on a new mural for Beavers’ market.

Artist Chris Bates, who’s painted transformer boxes (pdf) and other murals downtown, plans several panels along the west parking lot wall.

Bates says he wanted to paint the street-facing east side, but quickly realized that the snow plows on North Shields Street leave piles of snow and splash salts several feet up the side of that wall.

When this first panel is finished, it will look something like this:

Bates says he hopes to finish the mural “before it starts snowing.”  For Fort Collins, that’s often around Halloween.
