The JCCCW (or the ‘J’) is honored to work with artists Kenji Hamai Stoll and Erin Shigaki on the upcoming installation of the “We The Ancestors” mural — a public art piece that celebrates the historic legacy and the rich culture of the “J” community in the Pacific Northwest. Funded in part by the National Academy of Design / Edwin Austin Abbey Memorial Trust Fund for Mural Painting in the United States, the mural is scheduled to be installed and unveiled later this month!

To commemorate this wonderful project, the ‘J’ would like to extend an open invitation to everyone in the community to attend our outdoor Mural Celebration Event on Thursday, July 21st from 3:30pm - 5:00pm next to the completed mural, which will be visible from Rainier Avenue. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the artists Kenji and Erin, and learn more about the meaning behind the mural’s design with the community. Refreshments will be available, as well as mural merchandise like shirts!

Please join us in celebrating these artists and their tribute to the “J” community.
