(SULTAN, WA.) -- Mark Thursday Sept. 1st at 11 am on your calendar.

That's the date and time of the ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly restored Sultan Firefighters Mural on the south side of the Post Office building in Sultan (formerly the town’s fire station) located at the junction of 4th Street and Highway 2.

This important, highly visible (it faces Highway 2) and really nice looking community artwork has been restored to like-new thanks to generous contributions of people in the community.

Overtime the elements had taken their toll and degraded/faded prematurely what were once deep rich blues, reds, browns and other colors along with many details in the work that simply fused into a faded semblance of the work it had once been.

To see what the mural panels looked like new, check the 2009 Sky Valley Chronicle photos above.

The original paintings - three large panels one next to the other covering the length of the wall of the building - could not be restored because they were too far gone.

So new digital technology was used to restore the murals. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony refreshments will follow at the Visitor's Information Center across the street.

The event is presented by the Sky Valley Arts Council, which led the efforts to restore the artwork.

About the mural

The mural, painted by artist David Hose was a project of the city’s Centennial Committee. Hose is a local artist who has created murals for Eddie’s Trackside in Monroe, Monroe’s Napa Auto Supply and the many small murals you’ll see inside Monroe’s Hitching Post Cafe, among others.

Local residents whose images are painted in the mural include Genevieve Jelinek who was killed on Highway 2 in 2008. Her surviving husband’s father, the former Fire Chief of Sultan appears in the mural also.

And the fire house dog one sees in the middle mural panel is an image of a real dog that once belonged to a Sultan resident. The woman paid $500 for the privilege of having her pet’s portrait put into the mural as her dog, named Max, had recently died and she wanted to honor him.

In 2009 as a Sky Valley Chronicle shooter was photographing the murals, the woman approached the photographer saying, “You know, that was my dog. He died. He was such a wonderful friend and companion.”
