Lake Oswego Skate Park Murals
I’ve been wanting to take pictures of the new murals at the Lake Oswego Skate Park but our weather hasn’t cooperated. Finally, on one of our perfect Portland ’10′ weather days, I got to take some pictures. The Lake Oswego Youth Action Council & Fellow Student Artists 2012 unveiled a permanent art installation at the city skate park on National Skate Day, June 21.
The murals resulted from four weeks of work, totaling 40 hours per mural. Students from both Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high schools received volunteer hour credits for their efforts. Students were guided by Cydny Winslow, teen and youth program coordinator for Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation. Winslow worked closely with skate park coordinator Chris Hancock on the location of the murals.
Winslow was assisted by recent Lake Oswego High School graduate MaKenzie Reed, who works at the teen lounge teaching Thursday evening art classes to middle schoolers. If you’ve noticed from my photo blogs and real estate blogs, I love murals. These are vivid and beautiful. I enjoyed them even more knowing the students from Lake Oswego painted them.
