In 2016, over 100 volunteers came out to paint the Hollywood Garden Mural on NE Hancock Street between 44th and 45th – a block which hosts the Hollywood Farmers Market each Saturday. Taking its inspiration from the bountiful produce on display at the farmers market, the mural takes the form of a garden, with a path of stepping stones winding its way around fruits, vegetables and vines. This is one of the largest street paintings in Portland, stretching curb-to-curb along 100 feet of Hancock Street. On market day, it serves as a beautiful carpet for the farmers market, and throughout the week it leaves a reminder of the market on the street.
Our street mural has worn and faded over the past couple years, and it’s time to re-paint it! We will gather on Sunday, September 22nd to re-paint the mural, and re-beautify this block of the Hollywood neighborhood! Please join the event’s Facebook page here, where we will be posting updates over the next month.
