The Fortune Crossing neighborhood is a quiet and diverse area that features distinctive street name and good access to natural spaces and urban resources. The intersection repair was intended to bring neighbors together and build a sense of community. The spoked wheel at the center of the painting hints at the great Wheel of Fortune, the bicycle wheel (the present and future) or cart wheel (the past). The salmon is a reminder to respect the natural richness and beauty of the region, and the cycles of life and nature. In 2015, images of local landmarks, plants and animals were added to the street painting. The gathering space is a place of beauty and pride.
