Portland has a wonderful array of creative neighborhood murals – and we are getting even more!
Forest for the Trees is a nonprofit contemporary arts project. Since 2013, it has brought a group of local and international artists to create murals around Portland. This year, 29 artists will paint 19 murals around our neighborhoods.
The project is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council. The colorful array of unique murals helps build community pride and engagement. The main objective of the project is to make art an accessible and interactive part of our daily lives.
The project started on Monday, with most murals finishing up by the end of the week. Check out Forest for the Trees website to learn more.
