Moving Art Mural
The “Moving Art” mural, painted by Ken Wells in 2015, presents a commentary on depleting spawning grounds for salmon. This mural represents the impact that humans have had on salmon spawning grounds. At the same time, this mural depicts a gallery with a framed painting of a river with a salmon. Two sets of feet can be seen behind the painting as if people are carrying it. One of the salmon from the painting appears to have fallen on the ground near the young girl. This mural adds a unique atmosphere to the collection of murals as the location is on a building that used to be the Hampton Gallery.
