The Beauty of The Minks:
Oregon rain & pavement
A poem for my mentor, teacher and friend.
Hey friends, see that green bench in the middle of the photo? That’s the area where I’ll be reading/presenting my work at the PLATFORM – Integrated-Arts Festival on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at the EMU! Here’s a list of my fellow artists:
All City Strikers, Amanda Baca, Betty and the Babes, Brittani Holland, Cari Ingrassia,Caitlin Jemma, Chet Udell, Cynthia Garner Eugene, Lesbian Choir, Farhad Bahram, Harmonic Laboratory, Lillian Almeida, Mei-Ling Lee, Northwest Screen Dance Guild, Rebecca Connor, Steve Joslin, Superhoney, Ty Warren and Zach Boyt
Supported by the City of Eugene Cultural Services and the University of Oregon, Harmonic Laboratory presents the Integrated Arts PLATFORM Festival, a full-evening collaborative art experience. PLATFORM will take place May 6, 2016 from 8p – 11p (doors at 7p) at the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) on the University of Oregon campus. We invite you to an evening of art, expression and community.
PLATFORM began in 2010 as the (sub)Urban Projections Digital Arts Festival in Eugene, OR. Over the last three years, (sub)Urban Projections was housed in the lobby of the Hult Center, Eugene’s premiere performing arts venue. During that time, the City of Eugene’s Cultural Services collaborated with Harmonic Laboratory to help curate and produce the event. The Festival was rebranded in 2016 as the Integrated Arts PLATFORM Festival.
The festival regularly collaborates with over 70 artists, musicians, and dancers to showcase work by and for the residents of Eugene, OR. This year’s theme is Marginalized Voices.
