55th Annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts Celebrates Community and Explores 3-D Printing

55th Annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts Celebrates Community and Explores 3-D Printing

Lake Oswego, OR. The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts is expected to draw about 25,000 visitors from June 22nd – 24th. This year’s special exhibit is called Layers: The Evolving Art of 3D Printing. It provides a look at the artistic side of 3D printing and advanced art-making technologies.


One piece of 3-D printing art on display is by a California professor at Pitzer College, David Bachman. His background in mathematics and his affinity for working with his hands converged when he began to experiment with 3D printing. Since then he has created unique sculptures by using several CAD modeling packages.

UK product artist Lionel T Dean has explored digital design and manufacturing technologies for almost ten years. In 2002 he founded Future Factories, a studio focused exclusively on 3D printing. Lionel’s pieces are being showcased at the “Layers” exhibit. 

Southridge High School is collaborating with co-curators to print a sculpture onsite during the Festival. 

Exhibits, music, and artist demos are held at the Lakewood Center for the Arts and George Rogers Park. Over 1,000 pieces of art are on display, ranging from local to international, all juried so only the best make it to the festival. Juried artisans also fill George Rogers Park along with food vendors, the main music stage and the Chamber of Commerce Wine & Beer Tent. The festival offers entertainment, education and shopping for all ages in a family-friendly environment. Here’s a look at some activity at the park:

Visitors can also see artwork by local students presented in two unique exhibits: the Art Literacy Exhibit featuring artworks by K-8 students, and the High School Exhibit featuring all mediums of work by students grades 9-12.

About the Festival of the Arts: The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts is an arts education event of the Lakewood Center for the Arts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization. It is held the weekend after Father’s Day each year and attracts 22-25,000 people. Contributions to the Festival are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Screening of Gus Van Sant Film Raises $10,000 to Support Legacy’s John Callahan Garden

Screening of Gus Van Sant Film Raises $10,000 to Support Legacy’s John Callahan Garden

Portland, OR. Thanks to Willamette Week and Cinema 21, Legacy Health raised $10,000 to support the John Callahan Garden at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center during a screening of a movie based on Callahan’s life. “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” was directed by Gus Van Sant, who attended the screening and posed for a photo with some of John Callahan’s family members. Five hundred people were at the June 12th screening and an after-party at Courtney Taylor’s Odditorium drew some 200 guests.

Callahan, who died in 2010, was a cartoonist for Willamette Week and a fixture in Northwest Portland. He had been a patient at the Legacy Rehabilitation Institute of Oregon (RIO) after he became a quadriplegic in a 1972 car wreck and later volunteered there.

“Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” is based on Callahan’s autobiography and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It will be in released in local theatres on July 13th.

Joaquin Phoenix plays John Callahan in the film and Jonah Hill, his AA sponsor.

The garden bearing his name is nestled within Legacy Good Samaritan Park on Northwest Marshall St., between 21st and 22nd Avenues. It features an art installation that includes Callahan’s cartoons interwoven with his life story. RIO therapists use the garden to work with patients recovering from strokes and spinal cord injuries.

Portland Pride Waterfront Festival & Parade Expected to Draw Over 60,000 Supporters

Portland Pride Waterfront Festival & Parade Expected to Draw Over 60,000 Supporters

Portland, OR. Organizers expect over 60,000 people to visit their Waterfront Festival and enjoy the annual parade during the June 16th-17th Portland Pride celebration. Portland Pride is held every June and is organized by the nonprofit, Pride Northwest. Its mission is to encourage and celebrate the positive diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans communities and showcase the history, accomplishments, and talents of these communities. Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT community celebrates around the world to recognize the positive influence of LGBT people.

There are over 160 entries in the parade this year. Photos from 2017 help tell the story.

The Pride Parade starts at the North Park Blocks and travels to Waterfront Park.

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is encouraging members to join them again this year. 

As are health organizations like Oregon Reproductive Medicine.

The parade is just one part of Portland Pride. 

As part of 2018 Portland Pride, the Portland Thorns are partnering with Basic Rights Oregon and the Q Center to support LGBTQ equality.

Rainbow flags hang in the windows of city hall for #PrideMonth.

On June 14th Portland City Council voted to rename a 13-block section of Southwest Stark Street after gay rights activist Harvey Milk. The name change for the stretch of Stark Street between Naito Parkway and Burnside—historically a hub for Portland’s LGBTQ community—was fast-tracked in honor of Pride Month and this weekend’s Pride Parade. Milk was the nation’s first openly gay elected official. He won a seat on San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors in 1977 and was assassinated one year later, at the age of 48.

Local businesses like Green Bean Books are featuring special offerings for Portland Pride.

Elephants Delicatessen is offering sweet rainbow cupcakes in honor of Pride Month.

Pride Northwest also works to celebrate and support the whole of the Pacific Northwest’s LGBTQ community year-round. Whether working with the City of Portland to improve the safety and livability of the LGBTQ community, supporting other Pride organizations like Q Center, Latinx Pride, Black Pride, and API Pride, sponsoring rural Prides around the region, building community with our incarcerated LGBT youth, or showcasing the artistic talents of LGBTQ people, our goal is to provide visibility around the issues impacting our community, and to celebrate the culture and contributions of our community.

The Portland Pride festival is the single, largest visibility avenue for our region’s LGBTQ community organizations and businesses, where they can attract new supporters and clients, increase their volunteer base, and raise much needed funds. In addition, the festival attracts thousands of visitors to Portland each year, bringing significant revenue to the local LGBTQ business community and to the city, as a whole.
