RACC to host public arts mural info session

The Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) will host a free information session to help local artists and other community members learn how to organize, fund and navigate two different approaches to creating murals in Portland.

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

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

The workshop is free and open to artists, property owners, business owners and community and neighborhood association members. To sign up, email publicartmurals@racc.org with the subject heading “Public Murals Workshop” and include contact information in the text of the email.
