Painting Portland

August 26, 2014

Portland’s collection of vibrant and eclectic art is part of what makes our city wonderful – and last week, we gained 16 great art murals!

Forest For The Trees NW is a public art mural project.  Last week, 20 talented local and international artists spent 5 days creating unique artworks all around Portland.   

Funded in part by the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC), the array of stimulating, thematic expressions encourages collaboration and community engagement through art.  The main objective of the project is to make art an accessible and interactive part of daily life. 

Special thanks to all the artists, sponsors, and to Forest For The Trees NW for making our city even more colorful.
