What’s Portland cooking up on the creative side this weekend?
It seems like there’s always a vibrant array of gallery openings, live shows, films, art walks, and more going down in the nooks and crannies of our little city every weekend (yeah, we’re a bit spoiled), especially when the weather heats up and people start to emerge from their caves around May and June. Well, even though it’s going to be a bit rainy this weekend, it looks like the next few days are no exception. Here are our favorites for this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday around PDX:
- The Fifth Avenue Cinema, Oregon’s only student-run movie theater, is hosting Visuals, their annual film fest, tonight! With comfy chairs, free pizza, and a lineup including the latest shorts from talented student/community filmmakers and local media artists, how can one say no? Screenings start at 7pm on the PSU campus downtown.
- The Mark Woolley Gallery is launching the group exhibition Heads on Saturday, May 18th from 5pm through 9pm. Located in the Atrium of Pioneer Place downtown, the opening includes snacks, drinks, live music, and, of course…heads. You’ll just have to show up to figure out what that means :)
- People’s Art of Portland is hosting Art of Portlandia, a collection of local artists who’ve created art either for or about the hit show, from May 18th through June 9th. There’s an opening reception Saturday night from 5pm through 9pm.
So, people of Portland, what are you waiting for? Go forth and participate in your city’s creative culture!
Cheers and have a happy weekend,
The Co-Creative Team
