“Mount Rainier to be Exemplified in Wolf Building Mural”
“The historic Wolf building on the corner of Yelm Avenue and First Street is now home to a mural that beautifies the City, and exemplifies the proximity and view of Mount Rainier from our incredible City.
“The mural, a giant landscape illustration of Mount Rainier from a vantage point of a lush, green forest with a pristine river will capture the view and shape of the mountain as seen from Yelm.
“The artist behind the illustration is Scott Leamer [city’s error, Mr. Leamer’s name is Seth, not Scott], who has created more than 40 murals in multiple different cities and paints community oriented murals for new and existing Trader Joe’s Stores.”
“Steve Craig, owner of the building, which is on the City’s historic register and home to the Triad Theater expects the mural to add to the aesthetic appeal of Yelm and create a better sense of place within the downtown core. The mural is a way for the City to embrace the gateway status and establish a connection between Yelm, Mount Rainier and the Triad Theater, Craig said.
“The Yelm Historic Commission unanimously accepted the placement of the mural on the building under the condition that the landscape reflected Yelm’s view of the mountain,” by the City of Yelm.
