What if…when someone walked down the street in Portland, they could encounter the stories that make this place so well loved? Portland Brick aims to highlight what is significant about Portland through the stories happening here. It aims to celebrate the layers of local culture by combining the past, present, and future memories of the city.
Portland Brick is a multifaceted public art project that marries together community, function, and history through technology, live performance, and the fabrication of bricks. By collaborating with an historian and crowd sourcing future wishes and memories from current residents through social media and a website (portlandbrick.org), the hope is to create an everyman’s history, present, and future of Portland.
