John T. Williams Mural - Capitol Hill

John T. Williams Mural - Capitol Hill

A mural of John T. Williams on Capitol Hill is painted on a garage door at approximately 1524 11th Avenue near Purr Cocktail Loung. John T. Williams was a seventh generation Native American Carver who was shot by a Seattle Police Officer Aug. 30th 2010 for carrying a carving knife and a piece of wood while walking down the street. The mural features Williams’ wizardly visage straddling the world of the verdant forest with towering trees and the gray concrete of the city where trees are replaced by freeway support pillars.
