    Local artist transforms blank wall into inspiring mural

    A blank hallway wall at Mt. Scott Learning Center has come alive with an incredibly colorful and inspiring mural, courtesy of Portland artist Ashley Montague.

    Montague donated his time and extensive talents during August to create his “Imagine”art piece in one of the school’s main floor hallways. The bold and vibrant mural serves as a reminder “that it’s okay to look at things differently and to dream and imagine how your world can grow and evolve,” says Montague.
