Downtown Spokane should look a little brighter after this summer after several teams of local artists finish beautifying four railroad underpasses.
One downtown mural was painted back in 2000 and it has made it 14 years without really being defaced by vandals. That's the hope with the Wall Street railroad underpass, one of four downtown that will look completely different after the summer.
"We kind of wanted to have nature re-infiltrating this industrial area," Eric Parker said.
Parker is part of a two-person team taking on the Cedar Street underpass. His mission is simple: "Beautify, deter graffiti and generate a drawing that really responds to the pre-existing space."
"This is our community too, so we want to keep it nice," Todd Benson said.
The Maple Street underpass is the biggest project brothers Todd and Cain Benson have ever signed up for
"We are going to be here for at least a month, we got the other side of the street to do too and there is color to come but we should have her done in a month or so," Todd Benson said.
