Pacific Northwest Legends : A Natural History ;  Spokane, WA

In the fall of 2015, Will Bow assisted Justin Gibbens in completing a mural project for the City of Spokane. Located under the BNSF Tunnel on Post Street, this project was funded through the Spokane Arts Commission. Gibbens' 8-panel mural concept showcases historical and contemporary cryptids that inhabit the collective imagination of the Pacific Northwest. Each panel measures 7 x 17 feet.
