The RE Store mural is a collaboration between RE Store and the Summit High School art students, Sustainable Ballard, artist David Benzler and Art Books Press. The mural features a large woman’s face. One of her eyeballs is planet earth and from the same eye flows a river. The other eye features plant leaves for eyelashes. Around the top of the head: day and night. Around the bottom of the face: sustainable cityscape with windmills, solar panels, green roofs, small markets, and public transportation. It has this Ancient Indian Proverb written in the bottom left corner: “Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your Parents, it was loaned to you by your Children. We do not inherit the earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
