‘Dos Diegos’ mural to honor a pair of Timbers legends

Local nonprofit Cada Casa will commemorate Portland’s soccer culture and bring the community together by painting two buildings this summer.

A rendering shows a future mural with visages of Diego Valeri and Diego Chara on a green background. There are also stars, crossed axes, and sunflowers with a yellow and green radiating pattern.

‘Dos Diegos’ led the Timbers to their only MLS championship in 2015.

This summer, Cada Casa will design two soccer-themed murals to help beautify our community and pay homage to the sport’s impact in our city.

“Dos Diegos” by Richard Miller will adorn Sweet Home Bar & Grill in North Portland, depicting the smiling portraits of two iconic Timbers players — Diego Valeri and Diego Chara — whose outstanding achievements for the club are equaled by their positive work off the pitch.

And on the outside of Tursi Soccer in downtown, members of the local nonprofit’s CANS program will complete their 2023/2024 capstone project by painting “Rose City Till I Die” and “By Any Other Name” — the mottos of the Timbers and Thorns — in stylized Gothic lettering against silhouettes of the skyline and Mount Hood. Students from three different schools will collaborate on the 150-ft work of art.

Production for the murals will start in August and late June, respectively. Learn more about Cada Casa’s mission and donate to these projects online.
