Forest for the Trees is a public mural project based in the Pacific Northwest with the goal of engaging the community in the process of art-making.
Taken from the old adage “can’t see the forest for the trees” this project intends to broaden appreciation for the creativity that surrounds us. To do this we are inviting various contemporary artists from around the globe to come stay and collaborate with local artists for one week. Over the course of this week, the entire creative process will be shared with the community of Portland, Oregon as outdoor murals emerge around the city. The goal is to eliminate the boundary between artist and viewer, and to encourage engagement and interaction with these renowned artists as they inspire with their process and craft.
The event will take place from August 19-25, and until then, please stay tuned in.
