Rotating MURAL Walls
Portland unfortunately does not have any official "free walls" due to our current mural permit requirements. However, there are several spaces in Portland where you can see curated rotating art. Each of these spaces are managed and maintained by local artists in the community.
*Please do not paint in these spaces without prior permission from their curators.
Burnside Skatepark is located under the east end of the Burnside Bridge. This historic and famous skatepark was originally built in 1990 by the local skateboard community without permission and was eventually approved and sanctioned by the city.
STARk WALL (SE 10th + Stark)
For the past few years, long-time Portland-based artist Klutch has managed the rotating murals at the Stark Wall. Every year, he assembles a team of regional artists who come together and repaint this mural during a week long community event.
SE BELMONT + 32ND GARAGE
Managed by a local muralist, this residential alleyway has been home to several dozen murals over the years from both local and visiting artists.
Several of the alleyways in the Alberta Arts District have hosted rotating art spaces over the years, collectively managed by local artists and Alberta Art Works.
SE POWELL + 122TH
Managed by a local artist crew, this wall hosts some of the best graffiti-style art in town.
