Festival registration is open! Design Week 2020 runs virtually from August 3-7.
This unique show aims to raise awareness on expunging criminal sentences related to Cannabis possession and to support arts education for Portland’s houseless youth.
Artists have been chosen to transform their artwork onto beautifully designed geometric ceramic pipes.
100% of the proceeds will go towards arts education for homeless youth and to help in the efforts of expunging criminal sentences for cannabis related offenses. Many folks of color are in jail for possession charges in many states, including California & Oregon. Today they might not be.
When we begun organizing this show early in 2019 we also intended to have a letterpress portion of the show. Unfortunately due to covid and exhausted people power & funds we had to limit it to just the pipe artists as the production was already in the works. However, we want to acknowledge and amplify the work of the other artists whose work we were unable to produce. Visit the link below to learn more about each artist. They are all inspiring and we are hopeful to collaborate with them in the future.
