I Heart Art

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Fri, Mar 30, 2012 at 11:44 AM

There have been murmurings about the existence of an organization made up of reps from the Portland chapter of Etsy, PNCA, and the Museum of Contemporary Craft, but its mission seemed rather nebulous. Called I Heart Art, it's a pilot project "to support and advocate for Portland’s vibrant community of makers by fostering dialogue, inspiring activity and offering access to resources that are otherwise difficult to find." Tomorrow, though is the official launch, where they will reveal the upcoming year of programming (think small business development workshops) over drinks and food provided by them. Whatever the project winds up looking like, every single one of the organizations involved is pretty kickass, so plugging in with them is probably a safe bet. The party is happening at the Jack London Bar, tomorrow from 6-9 pm, where you can network and pre-register for their workshops at a discounted rate.
