The Noise (November 2013)- "DEDICATION"

The Mural Mice are easily remembered from the uproar of opposition over the Miller Valley Mural they completed in Prescott a few years back, and though their expression in public art has come to an abrupt halt there, they are bringing their talent and color to Flagstaff.

In the cool cover of night, R.E. Wall and Margaret Dewar stand on scaffolding, brushing paint on the side of a store on Mesa Main Street. When the sun comes up, they put their paints away and crawl into their own one bedroom — the back of an old work truck parked out back — and sleep through the heat of the day.
Wall and Dewar have been doing this since April, and the Eclectic Monkey Emporium, a second-hand clothing store, is finally starting to look like a melted San Francisco Victorian.
The owner of Eclectic Monkey Emporium, Glenn Blackmore, lived for several years in both San Francisco and Santa Fe before moving to Gold Canyon at the edge of the Valley. Going into the Valley for entertainment, Blackmore found Mesa and was surprised to see that the downtown of a city larger than Miami had none of the cultural identity and energy he was used to.
