Views of the Pikes Peak Region

This 130’ long mural rises from 18″ to 12’ high and was painted by Kim Polomka in 2016 to brighten a narrow walkway between a concrete retaining wall and the east side of the Public Safety offices at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs campus. This colorful, faux stone work mural, required special waterproof paint and special waterproof masonry primer, since the wall includes a number of ground water drains. The mural actually faces the McCord-Herbst Student Veterans Center and is intended to improve the aesthetic quality of the view of the retaining wall from inside the center showing views of the Pikes Peak Region that the students would see if the buildings were not there. To find the mural, stand at the front door of the Public Safety building (on the south side of the building), then go to your right on the cement walk around the building. Or, access the walkway from the east side of the lowest level of the adjacent parking garage.See additional photos below. In addition to “views” of the regional scenery the mural includes a number of fish, birds, turtles and human faces.
