Building Our New Landscape, Tigard’s New Community Mural

(COURTESY/NICOLE HENDRIX)

In the last two weekends of March, the City of Tigard and Tigard Downtown Alliance partnered with local artist Emily Lux and B&B Print Source to host an outdoor community mural painting activity. 

Through a series of two-hour outdoor paint sessions and following all COVID safety measures, over 300 community members helped paint sections of our new mural, Building Our New Landscape. 

Building Our New Landscape was inspired by the resiliency of our community through the pandemic and looking ahead to building a bright future together. The full mural design will be revealed when it is placed on the side of Tigard’s Main Street Stamp & Stationary in April.

Mural painters and passersby in the downtown Tigard area were also given daises and tulips to celebrate the beginning of spring. Over 1,000 flowers were handed out, provided by local florist Flowers by Donna.

This activity was made possible by a grant the City of Tigard received from Washington County. Special thanks to all the mural painters, event volunteers and sponsors, Kelly Marks with the Tigard Downtown Alliance for coordinating and Emily Lux for designing our beautiful new mural.
