Community Roots, SE 85th & Knapp

It's been a while since I've covered any City Repair painted intersections here. Generally speaking the close-in ones I know about have already appeared here, and the remaining ones are way off in St. Johns or east of 82nd, like today's installment. This is Community Roots, in the intersection of SE 85th & Knapp, a bit north of Flavel and Johnson Creek. In case it isn't clear from these photos, the design shows four trees of different colors, with their roots intertwined in the center of the intersection.

As with the intersection at NE 8th & Holland, this was funded by a Kickstarter, this time spearheaded by a local photographer. The project was funded in June 2013 and painted in July; here's video, a Flickr photoset, and a panorama of the July 2013 painting party.
