The Art and Craft of Serena Blossom Appel

A Last Stand at Last Thursday (Important!)

If you live in the Portland Metro area, you may have heard about the current conflict about Last Thursday on Alberta Street, the street-long, open market for arts and performers in the Alberta neighborhood. If not, go here for a recap.

These people are proposing a peaceful, creative community action as a response to the conflict over Last Thursday, which will be unregulated this month now that Friends of Last Thursday stepped down from office. I encourage you to support their action and keep the spirit of Portland’s creative community active and alive! Whether or not you directly contribute, these types of cultural institutions need our help and our efforts at preservation if we are to enjoy them for generations to come. Artists need to demonstrate to the City that we are their most valuable resource, not their opponents.

    I agree that the f’ing cops should stop treating groups of people like OCCUPIERs. so it’s okay to have meth-ed out idiots running around all night, stealing things and dealing, but there is no way the cops could let interested parties develop a community after official hours.
