Myron Stratton Home

This mural was completed in 2013 by Kim Polomka using a design created by Vladimir Jones advertising agency and selected by the Myron Stratton Home. The purpose of the mural is to recognize 100 years of service to Colorado Springs by the home which opened in 1913. The mission statement of the home reads: “Winfield Scott Stratton left a legacy to provide for poor persons who are without means of support and who are physically unable by reason of old age, youth, sickness or other infirmity to earn a livelihood. The Myron Stratton Home carries out his wishes by providing housing, programs, services, and grants to improve the quality of life of those less fortunate.” Stratton came to the Pikes Peak region as a prospector and made one of Cripple Creek’s richest gold discoveries in 1891. During his lifetime Stratton was a visionary leader in Colorado Springs. (Source: Myron Stratton Home website and conversation with the artist, Kim Polomka)
