Mural for Mudbone Grown Unity Farm at Oregon Food Bank

October 26th, 2018

In June,  I worked on a team to help finish a mural in Southeast Portland.

In July, I was added to the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s Muralist Roster.

And now, I’ve finished a beautiful mural for Mudbone Grown Unity Farm at Oregon Food Bank!

I’ve been doing volunteer shifts in the gardens there for a couple years. I very much admire the work of Art and Shantae, the leaders of this urban farm.

The design for this mural was sketched out by urban farmer and artist Edward Hill before I arrived to do the second half of the work.

I finished filling in the color and added all the finishing details to bring it together into this gorgeous, nature-inspired completed mural.

The plan is to eventually mount the mural up high on the wall of the building.

The mural is approximately 8′ tall and 36′ wide. 

Human for scale!

If you are local to Portland, you can go see it at the barn behind the Oregon Food Bank. (Sign up for a volunteer garden shift while you’re at it!)
