Art Hop 2010
KBOO is a proud media partner for Art Hop 2010:
When: May 15th, 2010 11AM-6PM
Where: NE Alberta St
For Art Hop 2010, we plan to have several murals painted and displayed at multiple venues along NE Alberta Street. AoA is partnering with the neighborhood nonprofit organization Community Energy Project. We have also chosen artist/muralist, Rodolfo Serna, who will work with local schools and youth organizations to design murals to be painted by those parties, as well as the attending public, on Art Hop day. All murals will be painted on plywood and mounted later to building walls with the help of another NE Alberta Street nonprofit organization, Oregon Tradeswomen.
After the event, AoA hopes to produce a printed directory of all public art on NE Alberta Street that will be offered for free at member businesses. The production of the directory will depend on future grants and donations.
Our theme for Art Hop 2010 is “ABC: Art Builds Community” and each mural will pertain to a different aspect of the NE Alberta neighborhood – from historical topics to current civic themes such as bike safety, youth, education – reflecting the multicultural and multifaceted makeup of this popular NE Portland neighborhood. These themes are in keeping with our mission statement: to promote the Alberta Art District’s distinct cultural identity through art and educational activities.
Art Hop 2010 will strive to be educational for people of all ages to learn about how murals are made through observation and hands-on participation. The directory of public art produced after our event will serve as a self-guided tour where people can continue to learn about art on NE Alberta Street.
The all volunteer board of Art on Alberta is excited to bring this year’s Art Hop to life, but we couldn’t do it without you! We are actively looking for members, volunteers, vendors, sponsors and general operating donations.
