A clean start

■ Contracted by the city, Surface Cleaning Technologies' Ryan McCoy removes much of the gray paint covering the beloved mural at the North 57th Street underpass near the Woodland Park Zoo last Monday, July 7. Surface Cleaning Technologies uses a low-pressure, nontoxic cleaning system to remove graffiti and 'other accumulated grime' from degraded surfaces, which it demonstrated for the city on a small portion of the mural on June 19. As first reported in the Herald-Outlook on May 23, the city had painted over the 15-year-old mural after receiving complaints of graffiti on the artwork. photo/Bradley Enghaus[[In-content Ad]]
