We The People - A Participatory Installation

Show Runs August 1 – September 2, 2017

First Thursday, August 2 | 6 pm – 9 pm

In August Blackfish Gallery offers a positive collective statement about tolerance and acceptance in a contentious, some might say poisonous, political environment. The central idea of the show, whose contributors include 30 Blackfish artists and other Oregon makers, is to underscore the fundamental values of diversity, inclusion and tolerance, values that nurture a robust society and contribute to the vibrancy of a creative community.

We The People will involve gallery visitors in this affirmative exercise by inviting them to add their personal mark—a signature or handprint—to the works installed in the gallery.
