NorthTown Mall adds a mural saluting region’s natural beauty

Rumors keep floating that some major renovations are planned for NorthTown Mall.

Well, we can't nail anything down.

We did learn that the mall added a big ol' bright mural on the second level across from the Earthbound Trading Company. That's a short distance from the food court.

Shown here, the work is a salute to the natural beauty of the Spokane region, done by local artist Peggy Best.

The mural started in August after several months of discussions between mall managers and Best.

“We had this wonderful wall space that was being under-utilized,” said John Shasky, the mall's GM.

“We started talking about what we could do and the discussions always seemed to focus on some type of public art and Spokane’s rich heritage.  Bringing Peggy on board with her fresh ideas and incredible talent brought it full circle," he said, in a release.
