The largest mural in Hood River County faces west on the back of the historic grandstands at Wy’east Middle School — a community facility used year-round for the county fair and other events, and recreation including soccer and Ultimate Frisbee.

    Don Collins and Scott Browning put panels into place. Collins, the county community justice supervisor, put to use his previous work as a general contractor. All labor on the mural was volunteer, from summer school kids to local residents who took a morning or full day off from work to help paint and assemble.

    Summer school students work with artist Allison Bell Fox at Mid Valley Elementary on July 10, the first week of the project. Paint-dipped leaves gave texture to the forest sections of the mural.
