Portland Art Spark
One of the reasons we live here is good art made by good artists. But something happens when a city plays good host to good artists: not only do they continue to move here, they stay, make good work, and most interestingly, meet one another and one thing leads to another (that’s another another) and they find compatriots, collaborate, share group shows, inspire, found arts spaces, and more. The collision of artists in the intersection of Portland is what makes things so delicious.
To celebrate and to encourage more of this sort of thing, the Regional Arts and Culture Council is hosting Art Spark every third Thursday at Living Room Theaters’ Lounge. Every Art Spark will be hosted by a different artist, arts advocate or ?, and this Thursday, March 21, from 5-7 PM Portland’s Arts & Culture Commissioner Sam Adams will make a most genial host.
Six@Six give the Art Spark host six minutes at 6 PM for a performance, a question, or a talk of their choosing. RACC promises “Freewheeling conversation for the rest of the 114 minutes.”
