How Can We Help You?


Ernest Doty and David Polka completed their mural on the SE end of Bartlett High School facing the baseball and football fields in early September.  The mural is called "Metaphysical Creation Myth" and measures over 150 feet long.  The artists used the golden bear, Stellar's jay and magpie to represent elemental forces of creation.  Rather than referencing a specific narrative, they hope the viewer uses the imagery as a starting point to develop their own unique story and interpretation.
