We’re Seeking an Artist for Our Office Mural

We’re Seeking an Artist for Our Office Mural

By Emily Irish


Willamette Partnership’s new office and the featured chalkboard for a mural

Willamette Partnership recently moved to Washington High School, a historic building in the heart of central SE Portland. This change has given us the opportunity to rethink how we wish to intentionally come together, how we’ll work collaboratively amongst partners, and in doing so how we hope to create a new and inviting space for those gatherings. 

The space will be primarily used for larger meetings and gatherings, when it is safe to do so, for collaboratives and partners amongst the many communities we work with in the Pacific Northwest. Because we are now in a historic classroom for an office, the Partnership hopes to contract an artist to create a temporary mural along one of the wall-length chalkboards. This mural should reflect the work the Partnership does, the communities we serve, and the natural environments we work in.

Interested artists must submit quotes by email before 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, 2022. The artist selected by the Partnership shall enter into a Contract for Professional Services with the Partnership. All work will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines as mandated by the state of Oregon while this work proceeds.
