Gresham Memory Mural
June 24, 2016
Gresham residents invited to share memories, photos to shape new downtown mural
Stories, memories, moments and photos, old and new, will form the downtown Gresham Memory Mural, which will transform the 3rd Street side of the brick wall of 301 NE Roberts Avenue this summer. The Center of the Arts Foundation, with support form the City’s Arts and Cultural Assistance Grant Program and local businesses, has selected wall muralist Lee Lauritzen to paint a mural depicting Gresham family life, culture and history.
Residents are invited to be part of history in the making by sharing their memories and photos of downtown childhood and family memories, festivals and community gatherings, and favorite restaurants or shops. The Center of the Arts Foundation will compile memories and photos into a timeline to assist the muralist in the design.
Memories and photos will be accepted online until June 24 at: greshamoregon.gov/ArtsandCulture/
