Just in time for spring, the City of Tigard has released an interactive online walking tour to showcase the city’s growing public art collection. The mobile-friendly walking tour contains photos and descriptions of 15 public art projects located in Tigard’s downtown district along with a recommended walking route that takes around 40 minutes to complete. Featured art projects include the iconic decorative glass baskets scattered throughout downtown and “A Walk Through Time,” a large-scale mural by local artist Jeremy Nichols depicting images from Tigard’s history and local flora/fauna.
“There’s a lot of great public art in downtown Tigard and the city as a whole,” says Dylan Dekay-Bemis, City of Tigard’s Economic Development Coordinator, who helped spearhead the project. “Our goal with this map is to bring people into downtown to discover Tigard’s amazing public art collection and hopefully discover something new.”
