You’ve seen the PBR art billboards around town for the last couple of years, now we’re giving Portland a chance to create their own. Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge has teamed up with Pabst Blue Ribbon and Portland Mercury to bring Portland the PBR Drink & Draw Art Show where the best piece of custom PBR art will be transformed into a billboard in SE Portland.
During the month of July a call was sent out to local Portland artists to submit their work, the top 20 were chosen to create a piece of PBR art for an open gallery at Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge. In order to foster creativity few restrictions were given to artists, aside from required dimensions and the suggestion to represent the Northwest. The top three pieces will receive prize packages from Pabst Blue Ribbon and Grand Central with the first place winner having the opportunity to display their work on a Portland billboard for one month. The Drink & Draw event is an excellent chance for local artists to gain exposure, display their work and to showcase local art on a large scale and highly visible medium.
The art show is open to the public and guests will vote on the winning piece allowing Portland to pick their very own local Northwest-inspired PBR billboard. The event will take place on Thursday, August 15th from 7-11 p.m. on the Mezzanine level of the Grand Central Restaurant & Bowling Lounge.
Bowling, game room tokens, food and drinks are available for purchase all night.
