Lincoln City is in the process of showing its artistic powers on the streets of the town, showing wonderful imagination and engaging content. Lincoln City’s “Activate the Arts” is helping young artists to appreciate art forms whether they’re on billboards, on sidewalks or on display canvases around Lincoln City. There will be six locations around Lincoln City where art lovers can enjoy the experience of art in the great outdoors – works featuring flowers, covering empty brick walls, an art mural at Wecoma Park and others to access the arts. The murals are expected to have a 15 year life span. The murals will be gradually making their appearances all around Lincoln City. You’ll know what they are because the great artistry that went in to each one of them. We’d show them here on NLC.com but they’re not ready or in place.
Most street murals have a 15-year lifespan…even at the beach. The idea of street murals was first suggested when Los Angeles started dressing up their streets in ways never before seen. And Lincoln City is going to be dressing up Highway 101 with some very attractive artwork created by Lincoln City school students as well as others.
The Lincoln City Police Department appears to be heading toward obstructing, or partially obstructing 4th of July visitors to Lincoln City who who will be all over town lighting off all kinds of fireworks. Understandably if it’s private citizens making the noise it’s a crime and tickets will be written and given to offenders by Lincoln City Police. Lincoln City Police say they’re not out to strong-arm locals or visitors but officers will write tickets if they see anyone lighting off fireworks…the variety that go high in the sky and go BOOM! Be careful out there on the 4th.
