February 22 PICA Curates and Designers Create

This week PSU's Monday Night Lecture Series hosts Kristan Kennedy, artist and visual curator for PICA, which is also a sponsor of the series. Kennedy knows the Portland art community in depth, developing her own practice amidst it. She is a powerful curator, with the possibility to mix international artists from PICA's network with capable locals. Hear her thoughts in the Shattuck Hall Annex out front, 1914 SW Park Avenue, at the corner of SW Broadway and Hall on the PSU campus. 7:30PM Free

Portland is a literary city. We have an endless appetite for talks too. And we are creative. An instance combining the three vectors is the New Oregon Interview Series, the evolution of cultural presenters 2GQ. Ultimately the interviews with Portland culture workers will be cast in book form. You can hear the live version, tonight, in the focus area of urban design. Mayor Sam Adams, Portland Monthly editor Randy Gragg and Portland's most renowned living architect Brad Cloepfil provide their thoughts. At Urban Grind Cafe, 2214 NE Oregon St. Doors 6:30PM, talk 7. $5
