TONIGHT APRIL 26th
6-9 pm :: IMAGO ART SPACE, 512 NW 9th
The Exile Poster Project aims to confront a specific area of injustice and oppression in Portland through the powerful medium of the poster. The annual show, based in Imago Dei's 9th street gallery, will feature passionate and personal work from Professional artists from throughout the city. This body of work will be presented in a way that will incite action within the city's art and faith communities, hopefully galvanizing those communities to assist the city in its ongoing efforts to uphold the law. The 2011 show will focus on the commercial sexual exploitation of children.
All posters from the event are available for purchase here http://www.exileposterproject.com/
This is a charitable photographic event that brings all people in the community together to have their portrait taken for $1. Each person will receive a digital file of their photo to use anywhere online they decide. The idea is to simply show that $1 alone doesn't have much impact but if we combine everyone's $1 together then something beautiful can happen in someone's life.
All dollars raised from the event go to the Imago Dei Community's Change For A Dollar Program, which seeks to help families and individuals who need help by providing money to them to help with their basic needs. In addition to the event, there will be a gallery show this summer in downtown Portland showcasing all the portraits/profiles taken from the event. Each black and white photograph will be numbered and displayed together as a profile of our city.
The event date is set for Sat MAY 7th
1pm-8pm at Imago Dei Community gymnasium
Please stop by and support this event by letting me take your black and white portrait and put your dollar donation in the bucket. Everyone is welcome but please know that photos will only be taken of those two years old and above so tell everyone you know to come. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
Thank you Jared.
