Finished mural by Jo Jackson and Chris Johanson in North Portland's Albina Green Park
Sorry for the late notice but the new Chris Johanson and Jo Jackson mural in North Portland
will be unveiled today from 12-8PM at Albina
. It is at the corner of N Albina and Sumner and there will be bands, drum circles, etc.
This is a good start for a city so adamant about painting all the buildings a cold shade of off white. However, Portland has a very long way to go in the realm of Public Art and should look to a city like Philadelphia, with its internationally recognized Mural Arts Program, for guidance. Also, looking up the work of seasoned and venerable artists such as Isaiah Zagar could provide a much needed shot in the arm.
