Portland’s street art culture is older than any of us, but until the past decade, the culture was a shadowy one. Thanks to support from a strong collective of street artists, the inner Eastside is the heart of the intense, passionate street art scene. Start in that heart, where we will safely fit you for a bike and helmet, ready for a sweet 4-6 mile/8-10 km ride to visit some of the oldest art forms and canvases (wheat paste and an incredible user-created skate park) and some of the newest (cool spray paint styles and brand-new buildings made for art).
You’ll learn about graffiti culture and some of our long-time favorite artists and the city’s newest darlings, pass by or visit cool old import shops filled with art inside and out, learn how the art culture is connected to the protest scene, stop for a treat if desire, and leave with a phone packed with vibrant photos!
Bikes, helmets and water provided.
