I would like to give a shout-out to my Old East Davis neighborhood for their enthusiastic support and hard work in making the Fourth and K streets intersection mandala project a beautiful reality!
Well over 70 adults and kids showed up to help. We were surprised by Margo’s fresh-baked pastries and Mark and his piano car. What a fun day! Thank-yous to Mark Rivera for his wonderful design, the Community Built Association for its sponsorship, Mark Lakeman and Portland City Repair Project for inspiration and mentoring and the Davis Civic Arts Commission for funding and advocacy.
And thanks to Mayor Joe Krovoza and the City Council for their willingness to support this unorthodox endeavor. May the Old East Davis mandala be deemed successful and multiply!
