Welcome to Downtown!

Jean Bradbury

Jean is a painter whose depictions of plants and animals resemble dreams or memories of childhood. “Small and vulnerable things are given grandeur and the power to tell stories of wonder.” Her designs for the utility box wraps shown are a collaborative effort that happened in three phases.







Phase One: A summer workshop took place at the Renton Highlands Neighborhood Center on Monday July 16, 2018 from 1pm to 6pm. Jean conducted the workshop independently working with staff from the neighborhood center. Students created their own illustrations which were then collected and synthesized into final designs.







Phase Two: Jean synthesized the artwork submitted by the participants of the workshop and created the designs for the above images of the utility box wrap.



Phase Three:

The City of Renton received the artwork and printed out the vinyl wraps, which were later installed in the Sunset neighborhood.
