Site and Newsletter Slider

Site & Newsletter SlideGarage Projects is an installation space for artists and designers, located within Station Place Garage at 720 NW Lovejoy Courtin Northwest Portland. Events and installations are facilitated by The School of Art + Design at Portland State.

Residents will have access to a locked window exhibition space facing the street that could be used for installations, a small park that includes benches, trees and sidewalks and a locked room located within the center of the parking garage that can be used for installation prep. We are looking for proposals that are site-specific, engage a diverse audience, include or invite the public into the space, and help develop a sense of identity for Garage Projects.

Interested? Fill out a proposal and get more information at http://garageprojects.org

Similarly Different is a visual collaboration between graphic design students in Portland (Oregon, USA), and London (UK). This project experiments with the visualization of points of view through collaboration. Students work together on letterpress, screenprinting, Risograph, and pinhole photography pieces, over a two week period, and then exhibit the work at the end.
