The Community Cycling Center (CCC) has just announced that the beautiful new mural painted on the side of their retail store on NE Alberta Street is finished! In honor of everyone that made it happen, the CCC plans to hold a party and celebration on Sunday, September 10th from 3-6PM.
The whimsical and vibrant mural was created by local artist Robin Corbo and made possible by a $15,000 grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC). Corbo has worked since July with her crew of volunteers to complete the 1,100 square foot painting. Here’s more from the CCC press release:
“The colorful mural covers the wall of the Community Cycling Center’s retail bike shop, located at 1700 NE Alberta Street. The mural details a bike parade of safe cyclists. Kids, families, pets and onlookers smile at the neighborhood. The mural reflects the spirit of the Community Cycling Center, where cycling is at the heart of a vibrant and safe community.”
It’s a tremendous mural and I recommend everyone ride over and see it up close and in person.
A very hearty congratulations and thank you to the RACC, Robin Corbo, her volunteers and all the CCC staff for giving us such a tremendous gift.
