Starting in mid July and scheduled for completion in August, the exterior of Coos Art Museum is receiving a fresh coat of paint. The building is being painted in a tri-color scheme of terra-cotta, yellow ocher and hunter green.
The colors (one of two options selected by the Museum’s Board of Directors and submitted to the City’s Design Review Committee) were selected to highlight the buildings many architectural details. Though the 1935 building was originally painted in “gleaming white” (as described in a newspaper article) the current color scheme refers back to the 1930s and the era of Art Deco.
Acacia II Painting of 501 North 10th Street in Coos Bay is the main contractor on the job and the project is being funded through Urban Renewal monies.
