The yearly event heald the first weekend of March has had a wonderful 15 years. Factors being what they are, the organizers have decided to announce the end of an era. The time has come to honor the SE Area ARTWalk for all it has been over the years. Many people of the SE Portland area came together to create a local showcase of art. We achieved many things and ultimately, our goal of elevating community involvement around art and culture. Yet, with all our efforts and love of the event, we now find the event unsustainable in the current times.
Thank you to all those who contributed time, effort, and commitment to make it happen. Thank you to local neighbors, neighborhood organizations and businesses for support with finances, sweat equity, spaces to show art, organizing skills, patience and all that went with throwing the event every year. We had a wonderful 15 years in SE Portland!!!
Thank you from the organizers of SE Area ARTWalk and may the future of art and culture in our neighborhoods continue to thrive.
