Kangas, Larry. Bella Venti-tre e Thurman. Acrylic on concrete. 2013. 12 x 65 feet.
Initially appearing as a vibrant scene in an Italian village, closer examination reveals that the bustling activity is in fact Northwest Portland. Side streets reveal craftsman-style homes and well-known sites such as the Chapman Elementary School during the yearly Vaux’s Swifts invasion. The mural seeks to show the essence of the neighborhood and provide a colorful attraction with fun details to discover.
