Show Your Portola Pride With A T-Shirt

Almost every time that I’m out and about in the neighborhood with my Portola t-shirt on, a neighbor asks me how they can get their own.  There is never a clear answer as most t-shirt sales tend to be at neighborhood events which are sporadic and not everyone can attend.  To help get more Portola pride out there via t-shirt messaging, we will be profiling each design and how to get it here on The Planet.  If you can believe it, this little obscure neighborhood currently has five different designs available!  All of which support Portola community groups and were designed by local artists.

Our first t-shirt is this moody blue-gray number, being modeled by our neighbor Anthony in the photo above.  You may recognize this design from the new mural and welcome sign, commemorating Portola’s designation as San Francisco’s Garden District. Created by artist Caitlyn Galloway, the proceeds support another upcoming mural project that the Portola Urban Greening committee is currently working towards.  The more shirts that are sold, the closer we will get to another fabulous piece of art in the neighborhood.  We have been told that this new mural will be an “intersection mural” and will be near the Portola Branch Library.   No artist has been selected.yet as the project is in the early stages.

Here are the details:

How Much: $25 per T-Shirt

Sizes: S-XL

  1. Pay via paypal.

  1. A Portola Artist Designs A Portola T-Shirt - the portola planet

    […] Earlier this summer, we let you know how to show a little neighborhood pride and support a good caus… Today we are featuring a design created by neighborhood artist Phillip Hua.   This Portola shirt design features native birds and wind swept  grasses, no doubt from our notorious winds.  McLaren Park’s iconic blue water tower tops the letter “L” and the entire composition almost appears to be a view into our beloved park (at least, that’s what I see).  The standard shirt color is gray but Phillip will create custom prints on other colors by request.  The proceeds go to support the G.N.G. and their work transforming the Goettingen Staircase. You can grab one today at the G.N.G. Block Party (see flyer below) or you can email Phillip and set up a purchase. […]
