Happy October from Executive Director Dinah Minot
Creative Portland is focused on finding opportunities for artists. We recently installed and celebrated the installation of three creative bus shelters, and we put out an open call
to commission artists to create designs to spread awareness about slowing the spread of COVID-19. The arts messaging campaign will reinforce the City’s Stay the Course Public
Health campaign. We want to remind you to be mindful of safety practices while entertaining you with fun and engaging local art to delight the whole family. Before Halloween, you will be able to stroll the streets of the arts district and downtown Portland to discover superheroes wearing masks and more. Maybe you’ll even spot a moose wearing a mask! Thank you for your compliance and mindful attention to wearing a mask in public, washing hands frequently, physical distancing and avoiding crowds.
Enjoy outdoor dining and curbside pickup after you discover public art and temporary art
popping up all over town. Check out the Project Project
on display in Congress Square on First Friday. Unfortunately, we have cancelled the planning and organization of First Friday Art Walk until it’s safe to convene and gather in large groups. Get out and enjoy the burst of reds and yellows as you swallow the delicious October air.
