2010 Portland Bridge Festival: Call for subkissions


PDX Bridge Festival is a collaborative non-profit with a mission to raise awareness and foster appreciation of the Willamette River Bridges through artistic, cultural, educational and historic programming. Our goal is to celebrate the bridges with a civic festival of artistic excellence, producing an awe-inspiring public arts celebration with the longevity and magnetism to function as the premier showcase for Portland arts.

We are looking for artists of all types—painters, sculptors, photographers, collagists, installation artists, filmmakers, performers, and musicians—to take part in this community-sourced, citywide celebration of the bridges. Using “Bridge” as a thematic or metaphorical element of your work is encouraged, though it is not required. The “Bridge” theme may include—but is not limited to—bridging communities, bridging styles, bridging time periods, concepts, politics, perspective, mediums, etc. In other words, we are open to all quality works of art and performance, and leave it to you to explain the bridge link in your artistic statement.
