Art for the Future
Pedalpalooza Bike Tour of Portland’s Grassroots Mural Projects
Saturday, July 2
11am – 1pm
2306 SE Morrison
In the last few years, muralists have hidden dozens of treasures around our city. We’ll go on a 90 minute pre-lunch bike ride to visit some of the cleverest, craziest, and most inspiring sights. As Portland grapples with displacement of its diverse and creative energy, we’ll discuss the story of how a Clear Channel lawsuit accidentally led to this modern grassroots movement of public murals.
Art for the Future is Part 2 of Know Your City’s Pedalpalooza Bike Tours, the sequel to the “Art for the Millions” tour of Depression-era public art.
This is a free volunteer-led event, but if you enjoy Art for the Future, we suggest a $7 donation to Know Your City, the civic and arts education nonprofit that helped create it.
This is part of Pedalpalooza, Portland’s kick-ass free festival of bike fun. See the full calendar here: http://www.shift2bikes.org/cal/viewpp2016.php
