April 3, 2015, Alberta Street, Portland, OR – Take a ride or walk down Alberta Street and discover new placemaking signage in front of Radio Room (11th Avenue & Alberta St) and The Sugar Cube (31st Avenue & Alberta St).

The goals of the project are to increase public art, develop an iconic installation that creates a sense of place, and honor the work and legacy of Art on Alberta (former arts / education-focused nonprofit) within the district. Together, the Alberta Main Street Design Committee, community volunteers, generous private partners, and public agencies successfully achieved these goals working with local artist, Ivan McLean.

“We are very pleased to have one of the new placemaking installations in front of Radio Room. We love the artistic signage and see it as another opportunity to welcome people to Alberta Street and honor the creativity and artistic spirit of our neighborhood,” remarked Sarah Betteridge, manager at Radio Room.

Alberta Main Street, a volunteer-driven community and economic development organization, worked collaboratively with many partners to make this project a success including: Ivan McLean, Armac Construction, Catena Consulting Engineers, Art on Alberta, Portland Development Commission, Radio Room, The Sugar Cube, and the Portland Bureau of Transportation. “We are so appreciative of the community for coming together to make this happen. The installations are so unique; they will naturally build a stronger sense of place on Alberta Street. ” said Kristin Slavin, AMS Design Committee co-chair.

“Placemaking strengthens the connection between people and the places they share.” – Project for Public Spaces[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][mk_page_section full_width=”true” padding_top=”0″ padding_bottom=”0″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1519345031877{background-color: #fafafa !important;}” el_class=”upTo”][mk_fancy_title color=”#45b4a8″ size=”40″ font_weight=”900″ txt_transform=”uppercase” margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”none” el_class=”bgLine2″]See what
