Roaming Elephant Mural, Port Orford, OR

Mark your calendars. Artist in Action Sunday, September 13th at 3pm!

Two things we love: Art and Elephants. American artist, director and producer Matt Shapira is returning to Port Orford to paint another Roaming Elephant mural. Shapira painted the existing mural for Katie (“Tasty Kate’s”) Vanwormer a couple of years ago and now will add more elephants on Katie’s purple building.

Shapira has painted murals depicting African and Indian elephants in cities all over the globe and, lucky us, right here in our tiny village. With his Roaming Elephants Productions and his art, he works to raise awareness and funds for the conservation of elephants.

Katie is cooking up a Socially Safe festive outdoor event so folks can hang out (properly socially distanced & masked, of course) and watch Shapira paint the new mural. Katie will serve refreshments and Dune will be providing live music.

Come watch the process and enjoy the music and refreshments.  Sunday, September 13th, 3 pm at the corner of 9th Street and 101 (the purple building). Bring your mask and remember to social distance.
