TakahiroYamamotoClass description
Through physical, vocal and awareness exercises, this class explore what it feels like to have “voice” in daily life and to experience physical presence in the space. These abstract notions will be discussed as a group in relationship to the exercises. Wear comfortable clothing. We’ll also work barefoot.

Teacher bio

Their motivation is to inspire critical dialogue between individuals of varying mediums or artistic practices (INCLUDING NO ARTISTIC PRACTICE), while deepening their connection to performance and their sense of embodiment.

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Friday, July 1 – 8:00pm – 10:00pm, Doors at 7:00pm

Strangely and Intuitive Compass present an evening of songs and circus antics! Show up in your fanciest duds; old-timey, outer-space, clown pants… we don’t care as long as you dance and sing along with the madness we’ve got planned for you!

Tickets $11 Presale []
$15 at the door


Strangely – This circus-minded rabble rouser is your host for this evening of music, and whimsy. He’s gonna introduce you to a world where anything can (& will) happen.

Intuitive Compass – The diverse talents of poet beatnik and guitar pioneer Jason O’Dea, taken together with old time circus freak and accordionist Aurelia Anne Cohen create a potent elixir of old and new, wild and wonderful. It’s a compendium of family vaudeville and proverbial three ring circus, frequently serving up fire, aerial acrobatics, and contortion, with an occasional splash of wild west thrown in for good measure.

Mish – Portland’s own contortionist extraordinaire!

And more surprise guests!

Mark your calendars! Little Free Galery Project is having a party at Lightbox Kulturhaus. All the artists. All the library box owners. All the refreshments. Exhibition is open at various locations June 17th-July 15th, 2016.

Little Free Gallery Project pairs twenty local artists with twenty Little Free Libraries (and their owners!) to create a free, engaging, family-friendly public art exhibition throughout the city in summer 2016. Each library box will be transformed into a miniature art gallery within which an artist will create a new, site-specific art installation.

A printable PDF of all gallery locations will be posted on this page at the start of the exhibition. Please feel free to print and utilize your own Little Free Gallery Project map to follow your own art tour!
Thank you for supporting art and community!

Help us welcome the first session of Mom Art, Victoria Anne Reis’ class for the first semester of home school. Work with/thru Mom Art, a counterpart to Pop Art, looking at/thinking about the mom, the mom-like, and the mom-adjacent in the art world. home school is a free pop-up art school here in Portland which honors the casual rigor of the etymology of ‘school,’ from Greek ‘shkole’ meaning leisure, idleness, rest. In collaboration with interested spaces as well as online, they offer welcoming contexts for critical engagement with contemporary art and its issues.
