Tour – Portland Street Art

Portlandia – Keep Portland Weird

Portland Street Murals

Portland Street Art Loop – 3.5 Miles

You can park almost anywhere for this excursion, but the list below follows a sequence that begins with Hair of the Dog Brewing. On the north wall is a huge tiger, Ernesto Maranje’s Guardian, striding through a garden of messages preceded by a fluttering bird. From the tiger, continue north on a convoluted clockwise loop that takes in more than 50 examples of street art. Here is some of the wall art to check out (as of early 2018; displays may change or be painted over in time!):
