You Asked for It: More Paint the Town Photos

I had a request from Patti Kleist to show some before and after photos. Happy to oblige:
(P.S. Did you see they’re painting the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton. Must be trying to keep up with Port Orchard. They are painting over the theater’s old aqua blue with beige and brown.)
P.P.S. Not everyone was thrilled with Paint the Town, as you can see from the last two photos.
Port Orchard Before "Paint the Town"
This photo shows the Orchard Theatre in Port Orchard (left) before a volunteer painting marathon in the downtown area on Sunday, Aug. 2. The building to the right was painted within the last few years, using a Northwest palette of colors (greens, golds and rust red).

This is poster that was in the window of a downtown business. It shows City Hall as if painted in garish carnival colors. The caption on the poster says, “This is what could happen to Port Orchard if Delilah was mayor.

The pole is painted white. The message says, “I painted this pole green in May Please remove the white paint.” The photo was taken Monday, Aug. 3, the day after the Paint the Town Party.

  1. I believe that teenagers got a little zealous with the white paint and the pole was mistakenly painted. That mistake will be corrected and the pole repainted.

  2. Mary – What about the Olympic Bike Shop building, the building that houses the Dance Gallery and the one across the street, which are not entirely done? Do you know who will do the work and when? I also see the Olde Central Antique Mall isn’t (or wasn’t on Monday) finished, but Heather Cole told me those folks are doing their own painting at their request.
