DEAR LUCY OPENS AT UPFOR

This group exhibition explores depictions of women and “domestic arts” by women, at the intersection of the intimate and the political. Ranging from portraits of recognizable public icons, to people unknown to the viewer, to abstraction, the works offer different perspectives on feminism, female archetypes and gender at current and past cultural moments. The artists, who vary widely in conceptual interest, medium, age, place and background, are united by their use of iconographies and materials that embed social critique, theory and direct action deep in their artworks. 


Dear Lucy runs from July 3 through August 31, 2019.

Gallery hours Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am–6 pm and by appointment. The exhibition and events are free to attend and open to the public.

Cleanup the Oregon Coast with SOLVE on July 5

Each year thousands of Oregonians go to the coast to celebrate the 4th of July. Celebrations often include disposable cups and cutlery and the tiny pieces of plastic incorporated in fireworks. Unfortunately, many of these items are left behind and become litter once the 4th of July celebrations are over. Volunteers are needed to pick up litter that is left behind to minimize the damage it causes to the environment and ocean. Volunteers will walk the beach and pick up any litter they find before it enters the ocean. Cleanup beach locations include, Sunset, Seaside, Manzanita, Lincoln City NW 14th St., Roads End. Visit the SOLVE website for additional location information. Cleanup events will begin on the morning of July 5 at several beach access points. See the SOLVE website for specific times and locations. Register online or check-in on the morning of the cleanup at the registration station.

For more information visit www.solveoregon.org/5th-of-july-cleanups or call 503-844-9571. Come Prepared: To make this event more sustainable, volunteers are encouraged to bring a bucket or reusable bag to collect litter in, as well as a pair of reusable gloves. Supplies will be provided for those who do not have their own.

A PERFECT BLEND OF SUBLIME MUSIC AND DIZZYING PLOT TWISTS.

Violante goes into hiding as “the disguised gardener” at the local Mayor’s country estate after escaping her abusive lover, Count Belfiore.

The Promised Land? Public Reactions to Portland’s Pioneer Monuments

In the early twentieth century, Portland residents erected public monuments celebrating Sacajawea, the Coming of the White Man, and Oregon Territory’s white pioneer mothers. Similar sculptures soon decorated the University of Oregon campus and the state capitol in Salem. But efforts to mark the 1993 Oregon Trail sesquicentennial with a similar pioneer family monument sparked controversy. Outspoken Portlanders resisted honoring white settlers who took native lands.

Twenty-five years later, as many Americans debate the fate of Confederate monuments, The Promised Land statue stands hidden in plain sight in Portland’s Chapman Square. Cynthia Culver Prescott, author of the new book Pioneer Mother Monuments: Constructing Cultural Memory, will trace shifting public reactions to Portland’s pioneer monuments over the past century. With Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council member Wendell Baskins, and historian Marc Carpenter, Prescott will lead a discussion of those monuments’ future. Participants will then be invited to walk with the presenters to Chapman Square to view the Promised Land statue with new eyes.

Peninsula Pool Reopens for Summer

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R)’s Peninsula Pool will reopen Monday, July 8, 2019, for the Summer 2019 season. The Parks Replacement Bond and Parks System Development Charges funded major renovations at the popular outdoor pool. The renovations at Peninsula Pool have increased the pool’s capacity from 188 to a maximum of 296 swimmers.

Peninsula Pool and all other PP&R outdoor pools are open through August 25, 2019. The project added a wall between the pool’s deep and newly expanded shallow water areas. The larger shallow water portion increases the pool’s capacity for swim lessons and for free play by younger and less experienced swimmers. The project also added a lift to the adjacent Peninsula Community Center, providing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access to the lower-level classroom and dance studio spaces. Other project improvements included new pool and deck lights, new drainage and water circulation systems, new pumps, a high-efficiency filtration system, and gutters.

Portland Parks & Recreation invites everyone to the grand reopening celebration on Thursday, July 18 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Peninsula Pool located at 700 N. Rosa Parks Way, Portland. Enjoy free swimming, cake, water safety activities, a synchronized swimming performance by the Rose City Raindrops troupe and more.

Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History

The West Linn Alliance for Inclusive Community is partnering with Respond to Racism LO, and Mary’s Woods Diversity Task Force to bring Walidah Imarisha to the community on July 23, 2019.

Disjecta Portland 2019 Biennial Opening

The Portland2019 Biennial will present a survey of work by Oregon based artists whose practices are rooted in a rigorous approach to socio-political commentary, presenting diverse perspectives on historical and contemporary narratives unique to the Pacific Northwest. The exhibition will focus on the nuanced thematics of site, diaspora, and the multifaceted histories of the region as told in eighteen projects. These gestures will address the continuous migration and erasure of communities from the Oregon landscape and, in some cases, serve as an act of preservation and remembrance for their stories. The exhibition will also reflect a layered view of Oregon’s current landscape – observing and commenting on some of the structures and landmarks that populate the state to formative ends. Such objects influence perceptions of the state of Oregon (and the city of Portland) within the country’s pop-cultural imagination and lingering fascination with Manifest Destiny. The selected artists were chosen as those whose current studio practices have been influenced by their relationships to community, landscape, and local politics.

Saturday, August 24

Oregon, Indigenous Nations, Manifest Destiny, and the Doctrine of Discovery


The “Doctrine of Discovery” is the modern-day name for the international law principle that European nations used to claim most of the non-European world. The Doctrine was applied against Native peoples in North America by England, France, Spain, Holland, and Russia. The United States adopted this legal principle and used it to claim the Oregon Country from other European countries and from the Indian Nations.

This talk will explain the elements, or factors, that make up this international law and argue that the Doctrine of Discovery morphed into “American Manifest Destiny” and was used, and is still being used today, to justify the United States’ acquisition of the lands and assets of the Indian Nations and peoples.

Superbugs: The Race to Stop an Epidemic

Physician, researcher, and ethics professor Matt McCarthy is on the front lines of a groundbreaking clinical trial testing a new antibiotic to fight lethal superbugs, bacteria that have built up resistance to the life-saving drugs in our rapidly dwindling arsenal. This trial serves as the backdrop for the compulsively readable Superbugs (Avery) — and the results will impact nothing less than the future of humanity. McCarthy explores the history of bacteria and antibiotics, from Alexander Fleming's discovery of penicillin, to obscure sources of innovative new medicines (often found in soil samples), to the cutting-edge DNA manipulation known as CRISPR, bringing to light how we arrived at this juncture of both incredible breakthrough and extreme vulnerability. We also meet the patients whose lives are hanging in the balance, from Remy, a teenager with a dangerous and rare infection, to Donny, a retired New York City firefighter with a compromised immune system, and many more.
