Leave a comment

Portland peeps! Check out this fantastic project showcasing the intersections of art and disability.  “A Somewhat Secret Place: Disability and Art is a two part project by Catherine J. H. Miller.  The first part of this project is the creation of a exhibition “A Somewhat Secret Place” to include 28 works of art, literature and performance from artists and writers with and without disabilities. Recently the Oregon Women’s Caucus for Art, (OWCA) a 501c3 corporation, has taken on the exhibition as a project of the OWCA.  The exhibition will take place at PRESENTspace 939 NW Glisan in the Portland Pearl district. This show will open July 7th and close July 30th 2010. There will be an estimated eight events to include an opening, artists talks each week, V.I.P. events, and a closing. To learn more about the OWCA please visit us at http://www.oregonwca.org.”

There is an event TONIGHT, Thursday July 21-  an artist talk with Erik Ferguson entitled “A Wobbly Line: from Improv to Ink and Back Again.”

Saturday, July 26th is the ADA’s 21st birthday party! “There will be a panel discussion on its impact, then the birthday bash with cake and drinks.  This is a ticketed event.  Invitations are sent to Kickstarter donors, and at the door tickets are $21 for 2.  For discount tickets $8 for 2, check out A Somewhat Secret Place Facebook Event page.”
