Did you know that Portland was named # 8 for Best Places to Live in US NEWS & WORLD REPORT
for artful living and farm-to-table dining? It’s true. People like you make the arts community what it is today - a tight-knit, talented group of wildly creative artists, visionaries and makers!
This week please come join us for an exciting local event on August 5th at Ocean Gateway at 2pm, celebrating refugees, featured in Puppet Happenings, published by the Jim Henson Foundation, reinforcing the urgent message “Don’t forget about us.” A Message From Far Away
not only celebrates refugees, but also Portland itself, a city with a proud history of embracing people from around the world, offering sanctuary and services.
We are excited to once again be hosting the First Friday Art Walk
on August 6. Buy Local Art! Vendors will be out on the streets selling their products and artwork. Galleries, retail outlets and cultural organizations will be opening their doors to the public for a free self-guided tour from 5-8pm.
