Vote on design for the new 63rd Street mural

May 21st, 2014 · Comments

A group of dedicated neighbors has been working hard to bring back a mural to the North 63rd Street underpass. The old mural was painted over by the city two years ago after problems with graffiti.

The volunteer group put out a call to artists in March and received about 10 submissions. They’ve narrowed it down to the top three, and now they’re letting the community decide. See the designs in person at several community events over the next couple of weeks and vote on your favorite.

Stop by Umpqua Bank, 7120 Greenwood Ave. N., from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday (May 22-23) and again on May 29-30 to view and vote. You can also vote at Bingo Karaoke at the Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St., from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, May 30; or at the Phinney Neighborhood Association Garden Party, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 31. See the project website for a full list of voting opportunities (more will be added).

Here are the three finalists:
