Rock Springs Renewal Fund Print
2018 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This mural provided by the grant will be displayed in a prominent area of Downtown Rock Springs where it can be seen by all who visit the area, including people of all age groups. This will not only honor the miners who came before us but ensure that future generations continue to honor their hard work and sacrifices.
Murals and outdoor art are a priority for downtown Rock Springs, which is home to the Downtown Mural Project and the Art Underground Gallery. (The latter is housed on the walls of a pedestrian underpass.) Disarming, a 54-foot-mural by artist Rose Klein, honors the region's coal mining past and the Chinese immigrants who worked as miners. Find it at 128 Elk Street.
