About the event

TEMPOart invites you to join us for our final event of the 2022 season – Late Summer Night’s Dream, a celebration where poetry and music will come to life beneath Pamela Moulton’s illuminated pink sculptures in Payson Park, entitled “Beneath the Forest, Beneath the Sea”. From 6p – 7p on Friday, September 9, six poets and a musician will perform pieces inspired by the sculptures.

Poetry by Megan Grumbling, Zina Mohamed, Jefferson Navicky, Betsy Sholl, Martin Steingesser, and Maya Williams. Featuring music by Carl Dimow.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public.

This event is part “Every Tree Tells a Story,” TEMPOart’s summer series of events in companion with Pamela Moulton’s installation, Beneath the Forest, Beneath the Sea in Payson Park. Curated by Pamela Moulton, each event explores the artwork’s themes of sustainability and community.

About Pamela Moulton

Pamela Moulton’s installations are large-scale, playful, hands-on, exploratory and mysterious…Moulton is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose newest human-scale immersive environments are built entirely from salvaged commercial nets and ropes. Her interactive spaces may be crawled through, climbed upon and occupied, allowing the public to explore its environmental consciousness in a direct, material way. These lost materials – haunt our oceans. They are durable, outdoor materials designed for human handling, connected historically and commercially to Portland’s development. Moulton uses them to pull her visitors into spaces which are evocative, sensory, and contemplative. World-building and collaboration are the bases of Moulton’s practice.
