By this time next year, there should be a rather large piece of art hanging in Keizer.
If all goes according to plan, a large mural – the city’s first – will be unveiled next Aug. 1 on the west side of Keizer Florist, located at 631 Chemawa Road NE. That day is the second anniversary of Julie Wallace owning the business.
The Keizer Art Association (KAA) is sponsoring the mural and is sending out a call to artists. Jill Hagen and Jody Farley brought the idea to the KAA board earlier this year.
“We want to see how the process goes,” Hagen said. “We want to see what kind of support there is. We’re hoping the community will be supportive of this. I like fun projects. This is a really nice thing to do for the community.”
