BRIDGE Spring 2019
The Distance Between Us
Sponsored by Earthbound Moon
April 14-20, 2019
Willamette Street between 7th and 8th Avenues
What if you lived in an artwork? What if we walked along a city street the way we walk through a museum? Can we see our surroundings as cultural treasures? The Distance Between Us is an artwork exploring these questions and many more.
For one week, Willamette Street between 7th and 8th Avenues will be turned into an artwork, The Distance Between Us. Fifteen businesses along this block are collaborating with fifteen artists. Each business/artist pair will create a limited edition work of art that doubles as a product of the business. The artworks are available through sales and engagement.
Throughout the exhibition, events will take place, including guided docent tours during the day; and discussions, live music and a pub quiz in the evenings.
