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.
Two years later it’s time to repaint the mural. Mark your calendars: we will be re-painting on Sunday, July 15th, from 10am to 4pm. See our Facebook event for more details and to invite your friends! Help us re-beautify this block of the Hollywood neighborhood!
(Note: our backup date in case of rain will be Sunday, July 22nd.)
