Billings parking garage paintings unveiled near city hall

BILLINGS – Some blank walls in a parking garage became a canvas for paintings telling the story about Billings.

Artist Terri Porta painted about 5,000 square feet of walls of Park 3 at 2nd Avenue North and North 27th Street.

The Stillwater Strings Quartet of the Billings Symphony helped celebrate the unveiling of the City Hall Mural.

An app is available to provide a chance to scan the art and watch a video giving more of the story behind the painting.

Porta painted the murals showing Billings’ past, present and future.

“Billings grows and in my impression, my artistic idea, I think that we’re going to grow,” Porta said. “There’s going to be color. There’s going to be excitement.  There’s going to be art all over the buildings. There’s going to be a water way somewhere in this town. So there’s going to be a lot of additional stuff here and a hundred years from now is kind of my dream of Billings.”

Porta said she received help with pictures and information from the Western Heritage Center.

Strata Mixed Reality in Salt Lake City developed the app called Strata Art, which gives the chance to learn more about the paintings.

A plaque in front of the building explains how the app works.
