Maple Valley is a beautiful place to live, work and play. Paint By Tunnels will make it even more! We believe that our community is full of creative people. We believe that when we all come together to make something beautiful, our collective world becomes a little bit brighter; hearts soften, smiles proliferate, laughter is more frequently heard. Art is our vehicle of choice. We believe that an annual mural festival along our beloved Cedar to Green Rivers Trail will be a highlight to be shared by everyone. Join us!
To build an annual community-based arts event where murals designed by artists and non-artists alike are painted in part by event goers in each of the five tunnels on the Cedar to Green Rivers Trail that runs through Maple Valley, Washington.
Picture a day when members of the community and visitors walk the trail, meet and talk with artists, pick up a numbered cup of paint and paint a section of a mural. Groups of teens stop for a selfie--or three. Local musicians are performing nearby. Food trucks, booths representing local businesses, face painters, and more performers are at the trail access points along the way. The following year, new designs are curated, selected and created in not one, but FIVE tunnels, attracting out-of-town guests and business to our community.
