Mountain View Mural Walk
Thursday, September 30 from 4pm to 6pm
3601 Mountain View Drive
Come explore public art along Mountain View Drive – and the Moose Loop! The fun starts at Grow North Farm, 3601 Mountain View Drive, where you can pick up local greens and enjoy delicious hot food from entrepreneurial food trucks. You can pick up a mural map there and walk, bike, or roll to Louie G. Mizelle Park for dessert.
APF and Neighborworks Alaska will be at Louie G. Mizelle Park, 299 N Bunn Street, offering local treats from 4:30 pm to 6 pm. The park mural is one of several on the tour, and was done by artist Andrew Garcia, aka Vow 1. It is on the E&S Diversified Services building, a business owned by Alaska history-maker and entrepreneur Mayfield Evans . Donations for the mural were provided by Anchorage Park Foundation, Neighborworks Alaska, Anchorage Police Department Association and Cops for Community. This mini pocket park is in honor of fallen police officer Louie G. Mizelle, and is located on the Peterkin Bike Boulevard as it connects to Mountain View Drive on the Moose Loop trail.
The event is in partnership with the Mountain View Community Council Cultural & Recreational Development Committee, Anchorage Park Foundation, Anchorage Community Land Trust’s Grow North Farm, and Neighborworks Alaska.
