Portland Prints Artist Residency: Emily Squires
This city is home to one of the most energetic, thriving, and innovative printmaking scenes in the country. From art schools, artist collectives, entrepreneurs, makers, and suppliers to collectors, galleries, and museums, Portland has become a creative hub for making prints. In conjunction with the current exhibitions featuring artists Andy Warhol and Corita Kent, the Museum is partnering with the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) to host a series of artist residencies.
Emily Squires is an artist and educator currently working for the Sexual & Gender Minority Youth Resource Center in Portland. Squires is interested in how young people use art-making as an organizing tool. Her multidisciplinary and collaborative practice investigates themes such as voice, participation, belonging and love. Squires received her MFA at Washington University in St. Louis and a BFA in Printmaking and a BA in Education through the Arts from the University of Michigan.
The Portland Art Museum is pleased to offer accommodations to ensure that our programs are accessible and inclusive. All spaces for this program are accessible by wheelchair. Assistive listening devices are also available for the lecture.
