A series of short posts about some of the beautiful murals in and around our amazing neighborhood.
Rob Lewis is the new artist to paint the mural on the Open Signal building. His project is called astral echoes. It consists of a mural, a visual meditation, and an audio piece made in collaboration with two artists and friends here in Portland, Matt Hayes (film) and Mat Randol (audio).
Currently, the City of Portland is undergoing a project called the Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway. This project is looking at making a calm, safe route for bicycles from south of Broadway to north of Ainsworth Street. However, this project is also the best chance we have had for years to solve some major problems on NE 7th Avenue (NE 7th). Some neighborhood residents have been advocating for a safer NE 7th for over 5 years.
