Community Mural by Base Camp Studio
About the Piece: This painting was created during a First Friday event in Downtown Bend on June 2, 2017. Community members were invited to add their circle to the painting. The circle is a symbol of connection, community, inclusion, oneness, and life. Painters of all ages added their mark, connecting the community and cultivating the creativity in all of us.
