PROJECT GROW: ART AT DOWNTOWN JUNE 2012

PROJECT GROW

Stumptown Coffee Roasters proudly presents a new collaboration with the North East Portland non-profit organization Project Grow. For this group exhibition, we selected recent paintings by eight of their regular contributors: QT Buggs, David Crittendon, Forrest Hellum-Willits, David Lechner, Olga Shchepina, Alvina Ternes, Dillon Vacheresse, and Jamond Williams. We hope you will join us in celebrating these artists on First Thursday at our Downtown café for the opening reception (5-7pm).

“Project Grow is a wild, brimming-full-of-possibilities art studio, a thriving inner-city farm, and a community space. Here, dozens of compelling artists practice their art and grow chemical-free produce for the community. In the evenings and weekends, we host lectures, concerts, and workshops to invite more of the community to be part of this movement. Our mission is to advocate for art as a viable choice in life, to grow delicious produce for communities that otherwise may not have access to healthy food, to create opportunities for people to bond closer together, to change stereotypes about what kind of life individuals with disabilities can lead, and to celebrate the magic of the world…together.”“Project Grow is a wild, brimming-full-of-possibilities art studio, a thriving inner-city farm, and a community space.
