Portland, March 5th, 2014. Central City Concern gathered Art Task Force members, donors, artists and staff to celebrate the installation completion. Volunteers like Art Task Force members Carole Romm, Kathleen Stephenson-Kuhn and Pam Baker worked for two years to fill the walls of the nonprofit serving homeless people. They secured 40 original works of art by Northwest artists. Art Task Force member, Jeanine Jablonski led the installation work over the past three Sundays working with other volunteers. The group of 120+ party goers were deeply impressed with the quality of artwork and Central City Concern is grateful for the many hours of tireless effort required to make this project a reality.
