Show Your Stripes

Like the networks of shapes that shift before the viewer’s eyes, Tacoma is a city constantly transforming and reinventing itself.

Diana Leigh Surma has been inviting volunteers and students to join in on the creation of her mural titled “Show Your Stripes.” In describing this intricately laid out design of geometric shapes Diana comments that this project

“celebrates the revitalization of Tacoma’s bustling downtown corridor and encourages youth participation in the arts. The design incorporates bold colors and overlapping planes that stretch across the mural’s surface to create a unified composition. Like the networks of shapes that shift before the viewer’s eyes Tacoma is a city constantly transforming and reinventing itself. However, the roots of its history and traditions, its stripes, stand to remind us of what came before.”
