Artist Lind­say Car­ron is mak­ing good progress on the mur­al paint­ing on the side of the Whale Muse­um build­ing. When fin­ished, the mur­al will depict three orcas chas­ing salmon fol­low­ing for­age fish through a bull kelp forest.

All who see the mur­al will know that the Whale Muse­um not only cares for their build­ing, but are stew­ards of our marine envi­ron­ment as well.

Lind­say plans on the whole thing being done on Sat­ur­day, so if you want to see this art-in-progress, you’d bet­ter get over there soon.

It's always good to have some help with a project of this size. This is Sarah, Lindsay's helper

The muse­um thanks the fol­low­ing who have sup­port­ed the project with cash and in-kind con­tri­bu­tions: The Nor­cliffe Foun­da­tion, Fri­day Har­bor Grand B & B, Town of Fri­day Har­bor, Fri­day Har­bor House, Har­bor Rental, Ace Hard­ware, and many individuals.
