This month, the Port is helping sponsor an exciting event, the Industry&Art: The Rivers Run Through Us exhibit at Vigor Industrial Shipyard. This must-see art show and sale is a unique glimpse into the people and industries of Portland’s working waterfront. The exhibit features both established and emerging artists (many of whom work in Portland Harbor) and includes paintings, sculptures, photography and more.
Industry&Art runs from September 22nd to the 25th, with open gallery and viewing hours this Thursday and Friday from 10 AM to 6 PM. On Saturday and Sunday, the exhibit is open from 11 AM to 7 PM, and in addition to viewing the exhibit, attendees can take a jet boat tour of the harbor, board the fully restored steamer Portland (the last steam-powered, sternwheeler tugboat to be built in the United States), and get up close to a World War II PT boat.
Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $5. Vigor Industrial Shipyard is located on Swan Island at 5555 N. Channel Avenue, Portland, OR 97217.
