Incredibly well-done. Corrugated metal siding creates a challenging canvas, but also lends a 3-D beauty to this old-timey masterpiece.
Stop and park to view, playground across the street and frequent pedestrians in the area so don't try to take in all the detail if you're driving by.

We are so pleased with what's been done. If you get a chance when the artists are there they love to talk about what they're doing. Thank you PDA!! We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to share the space on the side of our warehouse. Valley Plumbing wants to say thank you to Bill Weber and Ron Norman, the artists, & all that have been apart of this. We can't wait to see how great this big job is going to look at completion.
