City Hall welcomes "We Are Portland"
- November 15, 2013
Nick is pleased to host an exhibit of "We Are Portland" – a group of family portraits posed, taken, and developed by local youth – here in City Hall.
The City was proud to partner with My Story on their 2013 "We are Portland" program. With the help of an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, youth learned new skills through fun workshops, and then put their talents and artistic abilities to work by taking free family portraits for their friends and neighbors.
"We are Portland" empowers youth and builds community through the arts, and the portraits help showcase our community’s diverse and ever-changing demographics and culture.
Drop by City Hall through Wednesday, November 20 to view the "We Are Portland" exhibit in our first floor atrium. And keep an eye out in the community for these beautiful portraits – they could be coming soon to a public library or community center near you!
