Seen in FoPo


This is neighborhood pride.

Not only is the artwork rad and pride of place infectious, but someone has turned a typical, underused alleyway into something colorful and vibrant. It also serves as a proclamation of the pride that locals have for their neighborhood.

Props must be given to the Amrine family for providing the canvas (wall space) for the art and new neighborhood symbol, as well as the man behind the piece, Alex Southworth. We can now call this the “Okayest Alley” in Foster-Powell.

    Alex Southworth is an amazing talent that Portland should know more about. Catch him at Saturday market selling prints and t-shirts. He also an outstanding MC and does great work with underserved youth and incarcerated youth in our community. Big up Alex!
