“Help Finish the Puzzle” mural is part of Edmonds Arts Commission’s “On the Fence” temporary art program.

 The Edmonds-Woodway High School (EWHS) group, Students Saving Salmon Club and the Drawing and Painting class have collaborated on a mural which is currently on display at one of the “On the Fence” locations and depicts a salmon stream running through Edmonds. The work, titled “Help Finish the Puzzle,” is located just east of the Frances Anderson Center on Main Street.

On each side of the mural are puzzle pieces depicting the various factors that affect salmon runs throughout the Edmonds. The hope of the students is to educate passersby on the positive impact a community can have on migrating salmon.

The concept was developed by Rondi Nordal and the Students Saving Salmon Club. Mural and puzzle piece artists include Shelly Raivo, Hannah Noh, Lily Herbert, and members of the Edmonds Woodway High School Drawing and Painting class.

“On the Fence” is a temporary art program of the Edmonds Arts Commission.  Three fence sites are available for art installations at these locations:

  • 2nd and Dayton;
  • 6th Avenue North
  • just east of 700 Main St.

Artists are encouraged to apply to exhibit at these locations by contacting the Edmonds Arts Commission at  or by calling 425-771-0228.
