APEX: Sharita Towne & a Black Art Ecology of Portland

Jul 31, 2021 - July 2022

In the Museum’s APEX gallery showcasing Northwest artists, a new exhibition will showcase the work of Sharita Towne. The transdisciplinary artist gained attention in 2019 for A Black Art Ecology of Portland, an initiative she launched to bring together community organizations in support of creating, reclaiming, and redefining spaces for Black art and audiences in Portland.

The APEX series is supported in part by The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Endowments for Northwest Art. Additional support for this exhibition provided by The Ford Family Foundation.
