Artists ready to fix mural

Re: Editor’s Note: Stop the whales from fading, May 24-30

I read your Editor’s Note with some interest since last September I was hired by Tri-City Finishing, a local commercial painting company, to restore the Belmont murals on the back of the Belmont Building at Humboldt and Government streets.

The project called for me to stabilize and repair the crumbling wall and to blend in new painting with the existing old weathered painting. This was not a restoration per-se, as the goal was to repair the mural while maintaining the look of a 40-year-old mural.

I have been interested in the task of repairing the orca mural for some time and have many highly qualified colleagues who, like me, would love to work on a project like this. I share your concern for the mural and wish to see it brought back to its former glory.

Thank you for bringing this task to Victoria’s attention.

Jeremy Herndl,Victoria
