Mural Artist Adds Some Color to Endicott’s Washington Avenue
A gray wall on the side of a shop in Endicott's business district has been brightened thanks to the efforts of a Virginia man.
Scott Liam Walker has transformed the south side of a building at Washington Avenue and Monroe Street with his art work featuring roses. The Ever After Bridal Boutique is located at the site.
The 34-year-old Walker was putting the finishing touches on the mural on Friday. He said the design was inspired by the official flower of New York state.
Walker grew up in the United Kingdom. He came to the United States 11 years ago. He said he's created several other murals in public arts projects.
The Broome County Arts Council and the county planning department have been working together to provide grants to professional artists for murals in various communities.
Walker said he wanted to develop an apolitical artwork that would help beautify Endicott.
As he spoke with a reporter, a passing motorist who was stopped for a red light commended Walker for his work. She shouted "you did a great job" before heading on her way.
