MURAL AT MINI MART CITY PARK GEORGETOWN, SEATTLE, WA
"HOLD FAST (2020), a fresh mural by local painter Sanoe Stevenson-Egeland, uses vibrancy to inspire perseverance. Vehicles show up in almost all of Stevenson’s work, and for her, are as much of a destination as they are a part of the journey. In tandem with the saying ‘Hold Fast’, she alludes to the demand for communities to bear down, stay the course, and stay true to what they believe in -- to keep on truckin’.
Mini Mart City Park, a place which will continue to assert space for the art community in Seattle, displays the same sense of perseverance that inspired this work. It reminds her that we are in it for the long haul, and that art and the spaces in which we celebrate it are crucial to the formation of community, history and revolution."
