This summer, Village Building Convergence will be organizing dozens of free community events where community members will be painting or (repainting) decorative designs on the pavement of Portland intersections. The streets get closed for a sort of mini family friendly block party, and you can help make Portland a more beautiful place! All you need to do to be included is to show up. To find them by location, they have a map here: http://www.villagebuildingconvergence.com/placemaking-sites/. And many of the events seem to have been added to the Pedalpalooza calendar. I used the Pedalpalooza calendar search and tried entering "intersection" or "painting" and I found a bunch. Some may be listed as "intersection repair" and some as "pavement painting" so it's worth it to try both search terms. http://shift2bikes.org/cal/viewsearch.php?
