The Winterland project is an opportunity to engage community and encourage residents and visitors to safely explore art pieces at window locations throughout downtown, the Central Eastside, and Old Town.
Local artist Mike Bennett has teamed with young, local BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) artists to repurpose plywood that had been installed over the windows of downtown businesses, transforming it into a menagerie of colorful winter themed art pieces.
Residents and visitors to Portland are encouraged to safely explore the central city, searching for Wonderland art – and supporting small businesses along the way!
Starting on January 4 the art pieces will be auctioned off with the proceeds split between these nonprofits: Morpheus Youth Project, Brown Hope, Ally PDX/APANO and Native Arts & Cultures Foundation.
Winterland is a collaborative project produced by Prosper Portland, Portland Business Alliance, Downtown Portland, and Travel Portland. Our collective goal is to promote and inspire folks to shop locally.
