In the midst of enjoying the largest city in Oregon, Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas, creators of The Nomadic Project
, met with Administrative Manager of the Portland Art Center
, Kelly Rauer. The Portland Art
Center is home to two floors of gallery space set aside for
contemporary art. With the recent addition of an innovative Light &
Sound Gallery and Resource Center, PAC
should be everyone's first stop when visiting this eco-friendly city.
Along with enjoying original and exciting exhibitions, a step inside
these large glass doors will reveal the hottest galleries and exhibits
within Portland's five art districts.
Portland Art Center's
mission is "to cultivate the vitality of the area by establishing
informative, innovative and provocative interactions between art,
artists, and the community." Staying true to their mission, PAC signed on to The Nomadic Project by displaying the painting titled My Own Private Idaho
until the end of November, 2006. The acrylic on canvas piece is
available for purchase with a percent of the sale donated directly to
the Portland Art Center.
Oregon has become the twenty-third state for the
artistic nomads, as they move on to Washington to celebrate their
halfway point. All of the artwork can be viewed at www.TheNomadicProject.com,
where Llamas' music is also available. Art lovers from all over the
world have a chance to become part of this exciting adventure by
corresponding with Abraham and Llamas via e-mail. These interactions
with the community are part of the
exhibit that begins its tour of the country in November of 2007.
