Together we rise


Spread out over the entryway at the Oregon Labor Center, an inspiring new mural took shape this January. The project was a collaboration between Oregon AFL-CIO communications director Russell Sanders and a talented union sign painter, Bob Hansen.

Hansen, a member of Painters Local 1094, took Sanders’ concepts and executed them on the wall in the state labor federation’s chosen hue of Pantone green. Hansen is an experienced artist and owner of INKNIFE, a local sign painting company.

The mural draws from recent Oregon labor rallies and is meant to capture the current moment and inspire visitors to the state AFL-CIO headquarters, located at 3645 SE 32nd Ave.
