Stock is a literal stone soup funding art. It's a project of the social practice group spawned from PSU. The idea is that artists prepare a delicious soup of local ingredients. You come to dine at a nominal fee. Artists propose projects posted on the walls needing a little funding to move forward. The diners select a project to receive the night's proceeds, the diner's donations. It is patron crowdsourcing. It is a good thing. At Gallery Homeland 2505 SE 11th x Division 6PM-9 $10
