Albina Murals, which features the murals as well as interviews with the artists and community members. The mural panels were removed by the artists in 1983 after deteriorating quickly in Portland's rainy weather, leaving this film as the only known footage of the Albina Mural Project panels. Generous funding from the National Film Preservation Foundation allowed PSU Library to create a preservation copy of the original film, which was shot on Super 8. We have now digitized this film, which is available on the PSU Library website. We feel incredibly fortunate to have this historic film that captures a local example of the powerful intersection of community action, public art and public history.
