RACC launches pilot program for temporary murals

fresh paint, a temporary mural pilot project, begins in mid-May, 2017- April 2018 as part of a new professional development initiative of RACC’s Public Art Murals programming.

For the first year, three artists have been selected to paint a mural on an area of the exterior west wall of Open Signal, 2766 NE Martin Luther King Blvd., Portland.

Each mural will be up for a period of four months and then painted over in preparation for the next mural. The pilot program is a partnership between RACC’s Public Art Murals program and Open Signal: Portland Community Media.

The selected artists will receive a stipend for their participation and are offered the opportunity to engage with the myriad of resources at Open Signal.  Local artist Molly Mendoza will begin painting in May.
