Backyard at Portland State is a place for artists, non-artists, faculty and students from the university and the community to stage events, propose site specific projects and host gatherings of all types. Located directly east of the PSU Art Building, this lot is available as a resource for anyone on the PSU campus and PSU community partners.
ABOUT THE LOT AND THE PROJECT
This is a university-wide call for proposals about how to use the lot during Winter and Spring 2016. We are looking for proposals that are site-specific, encourage regular use of the lot, engage a diverse audience, include or invite the public into the space, and help develop a sense of identify for the Backyard. Interested parties are encouraged to host workshops, lectures, create installations or transform the space into anything from a temporary outdoor movie theater to a courtyard dance party to a free school.
