Project Description

Orchards of 82nd Art Plan: Living Culture: Past, Present, and Future
Date: 2019
Location: Orchards of 82nd, East Portland
Collaborators: Roshani Thakore and Candace Kita

The Orchards of 82nd Art Plan, Living Culture: Past, Present, and Future is a zine as an alternative form to standard public art planning documents. This work prioritizes the complex but unique living culture that is usually imagined by outside administrators and typically tokenized. Voices and ideas of community members are intentionally woven into this project. Ideas include exhibitions of neighborhood history, a community generated archive, an artist-in-residence fellowship, community dinners, murals, cooking and more.
