Celebrating Black History Month

As we continue to celebrate Black History Month, I wanted to share some local opportunities available in Portland to celebrate, learn, and support our Black community.

One outstanding opportunity is the special exhibition of Black Artists of Oregon at the Portland Art Museum, curated to honor the contributions of Black artists throughout history. According to the website, “Considering both the presence and absence of Black artists is critical to understanding the breadth of Black artistic production in Oregon—even in the midst of historic exclusion—as well as how the impact of that history affects our understanding of American art history and the history of the Pacific Northwest. This exhibition serves to deepen our awareness of the talented artists who have shaped and inspired artists regionally and nationally, and it will be the first of its kind to consider the work of Black artists collectively in Oregon.” 

Additionally, consider exploring the array of Black-owned businesses and restaurants that contribute to the unique character of Portland and support and uplift the Black entrepreneurs who shape our city and region.

Let us use this month as an opportunity to deepen our connection with the vibrant cultural tapestry that is Portland.
