Portland's Hidden Scene Coming To The Fore

Posted: Jul. 2nd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Portland is a rich city filled with all sorts of sights and attractions, but not all of the artistic and cultural aspects of the extremely diverse city will have a moment in the limelight. The Regional Arts and Culture Council seeks to remedy this by showcasing some of Portland's less familiar aspects at the Visual Chronicle of Portland.

The Regional Arts and Culture Council wants the hidden parts of Portland to be front and center in this year's Visual Chronicle of Portland.

The Chronicle is a collection of original works on paper that portray artists' impressions of Portland. Over nearly three decades, the RACC has collected 303 works from 179 artists. Most of the works are displayed in publicly accessible spaces in city- and county-owned buildings throughout the city.

Debra Beers, a working artist who has two pieces in the collection, says artists' interpretations of Portland range widely over time; some works portray Portland topographically, others narratively.
