I am pleased to have been hired to paint decorative, historic panels for a new McMenamin's complex in Bothell, Washington.
The old Andersen School has been restored and remodeled by McMenamin's Pub and Hotel chain, a company based in Oregon. They have transformed the brick building which once housed the Bothell High School, and surrounding acreage on which there stands now a Hotel, a Brewery and Pub, several Restaurants, a first run cinema, and a swimming pool just off Interstate 520 in Bothell's historic hills. The complex opened October 15 2015.
A hallmark of McMenamins' establishments has been a rich decor of original paintings and photographs of the history of the location. Bothell was one of the earliest towns in the territory, and has a rich story which includes the school itself and the local trades, activities, celebrations and interesting characters.
