Join us at Southeast Division’s OpenFest!
October 22, 2014
This Friday at 10 am, Nick and Commissioner Novick will officially re-open SE Division Street, after months of construction to improve the roadway!
Sponsored by the Division/Clinton Business Association, OpenFest celebrates the end of the Division Streetscape Project with fun festivities and the debut of a wonderful art installation.
The Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) was proud to partner with the Bureau of Transportation to bring the Division Streetscape to life. Division’s transformation includes new green street facilities (like bioswales) and street trees, better access to public transit, new sidewalks and street lamps, public art, and much more!
At the re-opening, enjoy delicious foods, drinks, live music, and shopping! It’s the perfect opportunity to support our local neighborhood small businesses, and many shops will have discounts and deals throughout the day.
Also, don’t forget to check out Division’s newest art: This All Happened More or Less. Created by local artists Crystal Schenk and Shelby Davis, the beautiful public art installation is woven throughout SE Division. Funded by the City of Portland’s Percent for Art program, This All Happened More or Less consists of delightfully small bronze figures on large, dolomite boulders.
Visit BES’ website for more information about OpenFest. See you there!
