From press release:

Invasion of Place Public Art Project
Sunday, October 30
10 a.m. – 6 p.m. | FREE | All Ages
@ NE 33rd Avenue and Clackamas Street

Invasion of Place is a public art project created by Graham Klag and funded by the Regional Arts and Culture Council to educate the community about the non-native invasive plants plaguing Portland.

On Sunday October 30th at NE 33rd Avenue and Clackamas Street, a crew of community volunteers will remove English Ivy Hedera helix from the Oregon Department of Transportation green space and take removed English Holly Ilex aquifolium from the surrounding area and with the help of a sculptural armature made from bamboo, collaboratively construct a sculpture with the removed non-native plant biomass. The piece will be a visual narrative placing the plant and its environmental impact in a historical and cultural context.

The sculptural installation event will take place at NE 33rd Avenue and Clackamas Street, on October 30th starting at 10 A.M. The construction will culminate with a live musical performance at 5 P.M., along with food. To sign up and join in the creation please contact Graham Klag at [email protected] or attend the event's reception. The sculpture will remain in place several weeks.
