Vandals spewed vulgarity across the mural.
What took more than a month to create only took minutes to mar, as vandals painted vulgarity across the mural Stacey Almgren and Nicole Monahan created alongside the Sammamish River Trail. The defacing was discovered Friday and reported on the Woodinville Neighbors Facebook page Saturday.
The Woodinville City Council unanimously selected Almgren and Monahan from among a half-dozen applicants because they felt that their experience in the medium, personal connections to Woodinville and the creativity of their design and approach best qualified them to execute the project.
Plans are in the works to restore the mural. Dozens of followers on Woodinville Neighbors have offered to volunteer time in helping to do so.
Anyone with information on the defacing is asked to contact the Woodinville Police Department’s non-emergency number.
