Live Event Mural- Old Town Street Fair

Live Event Mural- Old Town Street Fair

Old Town Association reached out to us to help align them with an artist for a live event mural during one of their weekly summer street fairs to support local small businesses. First, we received access and permission to paint on the famous and abandoned House of Louie building. Then, we aligned with a handful of other artists to provide a face lift to the building. This would help clean up the area and prepare the building for sale.

The wall we were provided is located directly across from a streetwear retail space called Produce Portland. Therefore, we wanted an artist that could draw from the company’s roots and incorporate their influence into the design.

Our artist created a photorealistic painting of a rooster, but with a twist! The rooster is wearing a pair of Jordan 1s – a node to another staple found in Portland’s backyard – Nike. The mural featured the words, “Rise & Grind” and was successful in drawing more crowds to the street fair and market located in Old Town. Local retailers, the Old Town Association, and the Portland community appreciated the live event mural. They enjoyed watching the process of spray painting something realistic at a large scale!

This live event mural was created in partnership with the Together We Grow Community Art Project with the opportunity for guests to watch and take photos and videos of the artist while painting.
