Tracing Favorites: A Portrait of Portland

September 27, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Drop in to Congress Square Park between 3-6pm Wednesday, September 27th to tell a story of one of your favorite people, experiences, belongings – your favorite anything! – and have your portrait drawn while you do. Or, create a portrait of a story teller by tracing their face while they joyfully share.

This interactive art exhibit will build throughout the day. Together, we’ll create a huge “quilt” of just-made portraits of Portlanders, exhibiting the diverse joy that’s been shared.

No “art skills” needed. No “story telling skills” needed. Just walk on up and trace a favorite!

Meet your neighbors, express yourself, and join the tracing party!

This event is co-hosted by Dela Here, Cincinati artist Gabrielle Lanza, and Nina Williams.
