SEGD-Global-Design-Awards-2020-620x380.p

Collaborators: Oregon Youth Authourity | Mayer/Reed | DLR Architecture | Art by Blaine Fontana | Photographed by Sally Painter 


Six original pieces on the themes of Honor, Respect, Commitment, Courage, Integrity and Strength bring remarkable color and an inspiring message to the exterior walls of this youth correctional facility. 


Painted in the artist’s studio, then fused into powder-coated ALTO™, the murals become a part of the architecture. 


The material was chosen for its durability and resistance to the highly-humid environment of Oregon.
