Bringing art, love, and hope to the streets! During this unprecedented time, Neighbors West-Northwest in partnership with the City of Portland Bureau of Planning & Sustainability, dedicated funding to support artists and small businesses in NW Portland. Art can help make even the hardest day a little more bearable and remind us of all that we still have to be grateful for. We hope that this effort does that for you.
Thanks to Kali Grey, Jennifer Urquhart, Portland Street Art Alliance, Old Town Community Association and the NW Portland Business Association for their coordination and collaboration on the commission of murals on boarded up businesses throughout Old Town and the Northwest District. The results are inspiring, fun and a good reminder of art’s vital role in building community resilience.
