Nori Kimura @monkey3productions finished this beautiful mural in the Oakland Madrona area today (intersection of Center & Durango). It’s part of the ‘If It Hits the Ground It Hits the Sound’ effort by @tacomaenviroservices, to spread the word that anything that goes down the storm drain ends up in our waterways. Nori’s design is inspired by real life sightings of wildlife while kayaking in Puget Sound, including a humpback whale! @cityoftacoma #tacomawa #tacomaarts #tacomaartist #tacomamural #stormdrainart #oaklandmadrona #natureinspiredart ...
