Art with Heart is a collaborative initiative hosted by the PDX Development Roundtable to showcase artwork of nonprofit agencies in downtown Portland. These organizations service some of our community’s most at-risk adults, families, and youth who are struggling with extreme poverty, homelessness, mental illness, and addiction. Through artistic expression, people who struggle are able to find some peace in their times of transition, difficulty, and chronic hardship. The Art with Heart Walk, in partnership with First Thursday, gives our neighbors an opportunity to view their artwork and to share with us their talents and truly unique perspectives.

ART WALK: 6pm-8pm
Begin at any of our participating agencies (listed below) to pick up a map and your Art with Heart Passport to begin your walk! You’ll get a chance to visit each organization, view their client & guest artwork, and learn more about the issues that they address each day.

POST-WALK RECEPTION: 8pm-9pm
After you’ve completed your walk, join us at Backspace to meet organization leaders & fellow walkers, hear from local authors and artists about local advocacy, and enter your passport to win great raffle prizes!
