The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) is hosting a free workshop to help local artists and other community members learn how to organize, fund and navigate two different approaches to creating murals in the city of Portland.

Free and open to artists, property owners, business owners and community/neighborhood association members, the workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 8, at Rosewood Initiative, 16126 S.E. Stark St., Portland.

Presenters include Gage Hamilton, an organizer of the public art mural project Forest for the Trees Northwest that brought 20 artists together in August; and Robin Corbo, an area artist known for her skill in organizing and creating community murals.

Peggy Kendellen, manager of RACC’s Public Art Murals Program, and Doug Strickler, from the city’s Bureau of Development Services, will help participants navigate the two options available for creating an exterior mural on a wall in Portland.

To sign up, email publicartmurals@racc.org with the subject heading “Public Murals Workshop” and include contact information in the text of the email.
