Core Sample: Portland

The Clear Cut Press publication: Core Sample: Portland Art Now is profiled in this week’s Stranger.

“Feeling overlooked by 2003’s Baja to Vancouver, a survey of West Coast art which was shown at the SAM, Portland artists took matters into their own hands last October, organizing a citywide, artist-run survey with more than two dozen exhibitions over 10 days.”

Core Sample’s website is an extensive documentation of the event itself.
I find it pretty spectacular that something of this nature could be organized so well and is more proof of the city-wide vibrancy of Portland’s art world we keep hearing about up here.
