Independence Day flag salute is in Inner Southeast

Oregon's one-to-a-state flag painting is on Johnson Creek Boulevard
by: Eric Norberg,

A Staten Island artist, from New York State, named Scott Lobaido, is presently engaged in painting one stylized American Flag on a building in each of the fifty states, as a salute to American armed forces.

For undisclosed reasons, to represent the State of Oregon, he chose the roof of the Smith Rock Co. at S.E. 58th on Johnson Creek Boulevard.

The painting was done on June 7th; THE BEE was there the next day to photograph the finished work, which is clearly visible to motorists driving past on the boulevard.
