Street Gallery, invites the public to an intergenerational art exhibit at 14 NE Killingsworth, formerly the Albina Art Center. The Albina Art Center served as a hub for developing young community artists.
“Crossing the Redline,” created by second generation and multi-disciplinary artist Bobby Fouther, responds to the Albina redlining policies. Fouther is collaborating with archivist, writer and community advocate Liz Fouther-Branch and well-known explorer-artist, dancer and photographer, Instar Abioto.
The exhibition will also feature the artwork of Portlanders Alice Price and Chris McMurry, along with a collector’s item from the work of Isaka Shamsud-Din, artist, educator and activist.
This exhibit shares the memories of the Albina Community, Albina Art Center, and the importance of collecting, archiving and sharing the long history of Black art in Portland, Oregon.
“We are sharing generations of lived experience and creation of community” -Fouther
