Lipstick on a Pig, at Vanport (MLK & Alberta).

Want to help freshen up a debacle, so that when we look at the eventual Vanport ‘Alberta Commons Natural Grocers,’ we won’t be reminded that city staff and leaders sold out the neighborhood, and violated the spirit and intent of decades of organizing work in he neighborhoods along MLK Boulevard?

Then take a gander at this call for artists to help smear lipstick across the Natural Grocers site, with the aid of public money from the Regional Arts & Cultural Council (why not throw good tax money after bad, all in the service of generating wealth for folks who don’t have anything to do with Portland?).
