Legal Walls PDX charts a path toward a more inclusive atmosphere for street art, and specifically graffiti, in Portland by planning a legal graffiti wall for public expression in the Central Eastside Industrial District. This plan proposes legal routes forward, as well as recommendations for implementing, designing, and stewarding the wall. These recommendations are informed by stakeholder outreach, best practices in other cities, and key advisory interviews. The complementary zine presents the idea of a free wall through storytelling and provides an approachable version of the plan for a wider public audience.
The companion zine is available below in the Additional Files.
