Jimbo Phillips Mural!

The week of September 12-17, 2021, we were honored to have the illustrious local artist Jimbo Phillips design and create artwork on our wall as part of the Sea Walls project. Sea Walls was creating murals around town that week to elevate awareness of stewardship of the oceans.

Monday morning (Sept. 13), the wall painted blue and the mural outlined via projection the night before.

Montana spray paints in use for the creation of the mural—available at Lenz Arts, of course!

By Wednesday (15th), a lot details were starting to fill in.

Jimbo's mom and dad, Dolly and the legendary Jim Phillips—famous for his blue screaming hand image—stopped by late Thursday afternoon to see Jimbo and his mural. They are very proud of him!

Back in 2017, Jim was voted into the Skateboard Hall of Fame for his decades of iconic art. Jim has been shopping for art supplies and getting custom picture framing done at Lenz Arts since it opened back in 1968 when Jim was picking up materials from Andrew's dad, Andy! It's crazy to think our materials turned into some really famous artwork!

On Friday morning, Jimbo celebrating getting close!
