Justin Gibbens and Will Bow were awarded Ellensburg Arts Commission funding to design and complete a mural at the Stan Bassett Youth Center in 2017. Will and Justin collaborated with youth at the center to create the design and execute the mural. Vibrant, nature-based images serve as a playful invitation the to center and reflect the charisma of the center’s activities.
