Here’s another eye-catching mural by Jeff “Weirdo” Jacobsen and Joey Nix. This one is on the 2nd and Main Cannery Building in Pioneer Square, Seattle, and is dedicated to the Good People of Seattle. The mural features four people: Michael Trapp, Ana Dyson, Michael Doucett, and Taylor. Trapp and Doucett are by Weirdo and Dyson and Taylor are by Nix. Ana (Bender) Dyson was a musician and graffiti artist who passed away earlier this year. Her portrait in this mural joined with her tag “Aybee”.

One panel of the mural reads: “Dedicated to the Good People of Seattle 2012” with FranklinAndThomas.com written nearby. 

Around the corner are some pieces by Baso Fibonacci and Jean Nagai. Fun stuff on the Flatcolor Mural Wall at 3rd Ave. S., 2nd Ave. Ext. and S. Main Street.

The Old Cannery building, you guessed it has something to do with canning. The Department of Neighborhoods has more background on the building, what its features are and why there is a discrepancy between the two facades (east and north) - hint, a street cut through it. An interesting tidbit: “the building was occupied by the Cannery Workers of ILWU Local 37. On June 1, 1981, Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes of Local 37, who were trying to reform the conditions for cannery workers and also had actively opposed President Marcos of the Philippines, were gunned down in this building.”
