New share the road mural for southeast Portland

Posted by on March 6th, 2006 at 9:43 am

There’s a new “Share the Road” mural coming to southeast Portland. Volunteers working as part of a Community Action Project with the Northwest Service Academy have earned a grant through the Community Cycling Center to paint the mural on the wall of the Hawthorne Auto Clinic at 4307 SE Hawthorne Blvd. According to project directors Sheri Earnshaw and Drew Englehorn, the “main theme will be Share the Road, with images of automobiles, bicycles, pedestrians and mass transit with riders/ drivers showing awareness of each other.”

A truly public project, there will be a series of meetings with community groups to gather ideas on the final imagery. The entire project will take about 3-4 weeks and organizers hope to be working on it during Pedalpalooza in June.

Below is the preliminary sketch just sent to me by one of the artists, Sara Stout. This is the design she will submit to the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) tomorrow, and the final draft is due on June 20th. According to mural organizers, if the design is approved by the RACC, they will start painting in early July. [Click to enlarge] […]
