Annie Wright School           Tacoma, WA

Bob designed three murals for two gymnasiums representing the athletic activities within Annie Wright School.  In the elementary gym a younger co-ed group of children were represented.  In the larger “Kemper” gym (above), two murals of like design depicts the elements of the female athletics program including some of the sports activities, such as rowing, sprinting, volleyball, and baseball at the high school level. Annie Wright School desired to use their school colors of blue and gold for their gymnasiums to add character and a new spirit to the school by modernizing a long time, stoic, conservative appearance.  Using the school colors along with the letters AWS, a  5’ three color wrap around graphic striping accented and encompassed the entire arena. Used Color-flex acrylic paint by Triangle Coatings.  Murals measure:  5'H x 11' W

              "Night Hawk Protection"                               Narrows View Intermediate School  

Narrows View Intermediate School had an open gym/lunchroom/multi-purpose room in which, they desired to have two murals to promote school spirit and academics excellence.  This 2 story opened space with slanted walls required Bob to paint the two mural on canvas using wood framing.  Their school colors were teal, black and silver with a “Nighthawk” mascot. Bob integrated the letters NVI, overlaid with a created nighthawk overlaid with a view of the Narrows Bridge.  Hence this flat surface has three images within it, as in a double or triple photography.  The second mural on the opposite wall demonstrates a large nighthawk spreading its wings encompassing multi-ethnic children involved in the academic achievements, community activities, school spirit and patriotism.
