Last summer, over 100 volunteers pitched in to paint the Hollywood Garden Mural near the site of the Hollywood Farmers Market, on the block of Northeast Hancock Street between 44th and 45th avenues. Taking its inspiration from the bountiful produce on display at the market, the mural takes the form of a garden, with a path of stepping stones winding its way around fruits, vegetables and vines. The colorful mural is one of the largest street paintings in Portland, stretching curb-to-curb for 100 feet. On market day, it serves as a beautiful carpet for the market, and throughout the week it leaves a reminder of the market on the street.
Now that it’s been a year – and a brutal winter – it’s time to repaint the mural and the market is seeking volunteers to help re-beautify this block of the Hollywood neighborhood on Sunday, July 16.
