Last summer, over 100 volunteers came out to paint the Hollywood Garden Mural on our block of NE Hancock Street between 44th and 45th! 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.
Now that it’s been a year (and a brutal winter), it’s time to repaint the mural. Help us re-beautify this block of the Hollywood neighborhood, and come out on Sunday, July 16th! Please join the event’s Facebook page here, where we will be posting updates over the next month.
