three trees painted on a brick building

Rebecca Arends' Stencil Mural

July 2019 I Spy

by Sally Bjork

From the August, 2019 issue

"Already gone indeed!" writes Joe Palms about July's clue. Those are "the cool sparse tree paintings ... next to Ashley Mews," continues Palms, referring to the anti-graffiti mural featured in our photo. It's "the little blue building that was just taken down on the corner of Ashley and Jefferson," says Penny Papadopoulos. "It, along with three rental houses, were demolished to make way for the building of The Gallery, a 22 unit condo structure," writes David Karl. "We used to walk past the mural of trees and birds ... all the time," writes Elizabeth Friedman. "Now our kids, 3 and 5, love looking at the construction equipment as we watch them prepare to build the new condos."

That's "Rebecca Arends' stencil mural on the side of the 1952 building," says John Zainea, "across [Jefferson] from Carter's Auto Service." "I've always liked the building," shares Marilyn Knepp. "It had an interesting shape and was painted a lovely shade of blue." The building "was a [family] counseling center about a block from Washtenaw Dairy ('donuts and ice cream')," says Jerri Jenista, citing July's clue. "Two blocks in the other direction," she adds, "is Slate Ice Cream."

We received a total of twenty entries in July. Our winner, Penny Papadopoulos, will enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Downtown Home & Garden.
