Current Public Art Opportunities
Artists and artist teams who live, work or exhibit their artwork within Portland’s Central Eastside Urban Renewal Area (map attached) are invited to submit qualifications for a two phase temporary public art fence project at the corner of NE Burnside and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The total project budget is $30,000. The goal of this fence project is to reflect and highlight the creativity and industry of the Central Eastside Urban Renewal Area by making this a dynamic corner.
Q: But what will happen to Marita Baragli, Diversity Manager for DHS if the taxes don't pass?
A: Hopefully she gets fired and has to find a real job. She'll probably end up being an "artist."
