Trolley Car Mural – Fully Restored!

And the mural restoration of the Trolley car at Don Pepe’s Restaurant at 705 Main Street is finished! Through rain, wind, sun and heat, Cathy Rowe, lead muralist and TRAG member, toiled on from September 13th to October 11th and the final results are breathtaking. What was once a dilapidated cracked and indistinguishable mural originated in 1992, is now a vibrant display of colors that beg to be seen as people go about their business on Oregon City’s busy Main Street.

The restoration of the Trolley car on Main Street was the kick off event for murals once again in Oregon City. The project was financed by TRAG through Oregon City’s Metro Enhancement grant. The outstanding funding will be used for a future brand new mural at a location to be announced towards the spring/summer of 2022. Look for murals coming to Oregon City with Friends of the Library, Live Edge Salon, and White Rabbit Black Ink – to name a few. Art and culture is alive and well in Oregon City! Thank you Cathy and Oregon City for ushering us in to this momentous time.
