Friday, January 7. 2-5pm at Field Work (1101 SW Jefferson Ave.)
North South Portland is a project that is currently underway at Field Work, a PSU art space in downtown Portland. Artists (and graphic design students and alum!) Justin Flood, Sarah Baugh and Nicole Lavelle invite you to help shape the project with your input and collaboration through a workshop co-sponsored by the Friends of Graphic Design.
Explore 1960’s typography and hand lettering techniques while participating in a discussion about the polarizing nature of urban renewal.
Is renewal helpful or detrimental to neighborhoods? Can communities benefit from quick, planned urban development? Let's investigate the role that visual communication can play in community politics and land use issues. Come craft protest signs supporting or decrying urban renewal, and learn about the history of the PSU neighborhood and how it came to its present state.
We'll have painting supplies and sign materials, as well as information about the history of urban renewal in Portland. Plus hot tea and classic 1960's jams!
All signs will be on display at Field Work from January 7 to January 16. Participants are welcome to take their signs home after that date.
