BREAKING: Mural project rescheduled for Sunday, July 17.
Hollywood area neighbors will gather to paint a section of Northeast Hancock Street with the colors of a bountiful garden, said Sarah Vitak, a coordinator of the project.
The project was originally scheduled for Sunday, July 10, but has been moved forward one week due to a prediction for an especially rainy Sunday.
All are welcome to join in the street mural project on July 17 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Hancock Street, between 44th and 45th avenues, where the Hollywood Farmers Market takes place, Vitak said. A potluck celebration is planned at 6 p.m.
Also planned during the day are music, a kids’ craft area, refreshments and shade, said Ari Rosner, the market manager.

The 80-by-40-foot street mural, designed by Elise Mesnard, is intended, Rosner said, “to beautify the farmers market, but also to unite the community around the painting and to leave a reminder of the market on the street throughout the week.”
A group of Northeast residents worked with the market and the city bureau of transportation to design the street painting, Portland’s second under regulations passed by city council last year.
Another mid-block painting is on Northeast Wygant Street between 57th and 60th avenues.
