Community Launch at Mayo Street Arts

Tuesday, April 26th, was the TEMPOart Community Launch of our inaugural project “The American Dream” by artist Judith Hoffman.

We heard about the importance of public art to communities and their economies, TEMPOart’s goal to bring more beauty to areas of Portland “in transition” and to help raise public awareness and conversation about how change affects our community.

Judith’s sculpture will be installed in late May in Lincoln Park at the corner of Congress and Franklin Streets! Official unveiling will take place on June 3rd, “First Friday,” beginning at 5:00 pm with a celebration to follow. Mark your calendar to join us for this very special occasion.
