Portland's Largest Mural at Oaks Bottom
A new mural is rising above the wetlands of Oaks Bottom. The largest public art project in Portland is beginning to adorn the walls of Portland Memorial that face the Bottoms. By next spring this former eyesore of weirdness will become an artistic reflection of the diversity of nature that abounds in Portland's singular city-owned wildlife refuge.
Mike Houck, the original visionary for this project; Peggy Kendellen, public art manager for the Regional Arts and Culture Council; and Dan Cohen with ArtFX (here, too) join Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein to talk about the impact and signficance of this project. Happy New Year!
