Walls of Pride: A Tour of African American Public Art in Portland

March 15, 2011

Come by In Other Words and pick up your copy of Walls of Pride!!

“If you know where to look, Portland is an art gallery. And somewhere amid this miles-wide showroom is a collection of African American mural art. But there’s no glass or alarms to protect what artists have made here; no guards to tell people not to touch. So, while bits have survived, some have been defaced and others have been torn down in the name of development…The booklet, “Walls of Pride,” offer[s] short histories on the pieces throughout the city, a map for self-guided tours and interviews with two local muralists, Shamsud-Din and Adriene Cruz, ‘to tell the story from the artists’ perspective rather than this outsider’s perspective.'”
Ryan Kost, The Oregonian
