Update on Denver Harbor Mini-Murals
The Padilla family, while honored to have been selected for recognition on the mini-mural planned for Kress and Lyons, have respectfully requested they not be featured on the mural. We are honoring that request. Instead, both mini-murals coming to Denver Harbor will reflect some of the historic and iconic landmarks of Denver Harbor. The reception planned for September 28th at Tuttle Library celebrating the installation of a mini-mural in Denver Harbor has been cancelled.
