Friendtorship presents: A Ladder To The Moon
A Collaboration Celebration

Friday, December 5th 2014 6–9pm
Tillamook Station: 665 North Tillamook Street
Facebook RSVP

What’s your dream? How will you get there? These were the questions we asked this fall term in Friendtorship at PSU, and our exhibition, “A Ladder To the Moon,” is all about our journey to find those answers.

A collaboration with students from Centennial Park High School and Portland artist Jill Dryer, “A Ladder To the Moon” illustrates how the art of storytelling can help us shape the narratives of our lives and guide us on the path to discover who we are, and who we want to be.

Join us as we celebrate the friendships and art we created this fall. Meet the artists, enjoy refreshments with us as we gather to support social change through art and mentorship.

What the Help? Be a Mentor! Be a Mentee!

WTH is What the Help!?What the Help is PSUGD’s mentorship program, which pairs sophomores going through the portfolio review with juniors/seniors who have already passed that can give them some guidance.

This year, the sign-up process is totally digital.
If you’re a sophomore looking for a mentor, click here:
If you’re a junior/senior looking to be a mentor, click here:
Please fill out the application as soon as possible so that we can make the mentor pairings quickly. Our goal is to have them done before the beginning of Winter term, but we can only do that if everyone gets their applications in on time.

What the Help? is a campaign created in A+D Projects by Jesse Weeg, Benjamin Woodcock and Zack Franceschi for a program that is managed by Friends of Graphic Design.
