ABOUT THE WORK
Since 2000, neighbors of Portland’s historic Sunnyside neighborhood have come together every Spring to repaint a huge sunflower at the intersection of SE 33rd and Yamhill, one block off Belmont. Sunnyside Piazza is unique in that it contains commissioned art in addition to community art interventions like the painted sunflower. Also at the piazza are birdhouses, chalk boxes, metal sculptors, wooden plaques, yarn installations, and various forms of art adhered to the backs of signs and poles. Passersby are drawn to this community art — it is a real tourist destination. Visitors often ask questions, interact with, and take pictures of these quirky interventions.
