Our artBURST programming is focused on strengthening the arts community in our neighborhood and using art as a platform for building community connections. The primary programs that fall within the artBURST brand include the Arts Constitutional and Art Walk series.
September 8th, 9 am-2 pm
at the St. Johns Farmers Market
The Art Constitutional joins the St. Johns Farmers Market twice during the summer months to activate the St. Johns neighborhood through hands-on art making, musical performances, and by bringing in local arts and crafts vendors. This year the next Art Constitutional is September 8th.
Arts/Crafts Vendors: connect and shop with local artists and crafts people including painters, illustrators, jewelry designers, woodworkers, fabric artists, glass artists, and more. Some even do live demonstrations!
Music/Performances: enjoy music from St. Johns locals and a diverse array of genres. In the past, we've had performers like the Obo Addy Legacy Project, The Aztec Dancers, Katelyn Convery, DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid, and Huayra Lucas join us.
Vendor applications are now closed for the September 8th event.
September 21st, 5-8 pm
Downtown St. Johns
North Portland, the “Peninsula”, and St. Johns in particular, is home to talented artists and a burgeoning art scene, and it’s time to celebrate the creative spirit of the neighborhood! Our Art Walk series happens once per quarter, and is focused in the downtown business district of St. Johns. Our team helps curate this event by pairing artists with local businesses to showcase and sell their work.
Our next Art Walk is happening September 21st from 5 pm to 8 pm. Artist applications have closed.
