Portland loves art… and using talk and art as an excuse to do our actual favorite things: eat and drink. So! Portland Stock steps in with a lovely idea.
Artists send in proposals for a “grant,”which is on display at the dinner. Diners vote on which proposal ought to be funded — out of the money they paid to get in the door and get fed. That artist presents their work at the next Portland Stock dinner, the following month.
Other charming options for food, drink, and moderated discussion about creativity and art in this town: New Oregon Interview Series (next event this Wednesday) hosted by Nora Robertson, the back room with host/curators Matthew Stadler and Stephanie Snyder, and Bright Lights, hosted by Randy Gragg.
