Intersection Mural Project

Intersection Mural Project

On Sunday, August 27th, 2017 The Lloyd EcoDistrict, in collaboration with Rather Severe and Color Outside the Lines, completed the first intersection mural in the Lloyd neighborhood! This project was supported by City Repair as part of their Village Building Convergence. Volunteers from Wells Fargo and Color Outside the Lines joined community members to complete the colorful vortex, which is adjacent to Calaroga Terrace, a senior living facility. Over the past year, we sought input on project locations and design ideas. The mural is located NE 2nd Ave and NE Clackamas St. Going forward, we hope to have a number of these projects throughout the neighborhood, building on the assets and talents of the people that live, work and play in the Lloyd EcoDistrict.
 

We transformed this…

Into this!
