Let's gather together -safely- and in celebration of contemporary art. Bloom is an open-air, sliding scale, community-oriented fundraising event for Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA).
This event, which can be accessed via drive-in or streamed live from the comfort of your home, is the anti-gala we've all been waiting for. With themes of collective connection and transformation, ALL are invited to experience this come-as-you-are gathering.
Guests can expect virtual musical performances from Blossom, Moorea Masa, and Frankie Simone to be projected large-scale and outdoors thanks to Nanda D'Agostino and Sarah Turner of Mobile Projection Unit. Plus, drive-in-only performances by Friends of Noise artists MARZZ and Beep Beep, along with a virtual end-of-the-night performance by Shannon Funchess aka LIGHT ASYLUM! In addition to the performances, there will be raffle tickets, a virtual auction, and surprise treats! Hosted by the incredible Gia Goodrich, Bloom provides us all with a much-needed chance to get out, or hang in, together as a community! Click on the link above to reserve your spot today.
Drive-In Location: Lloyd Center | The entrance is at the West-end parking garage at Lloyd Center (10th Ave and NE Halsey). Note, we will be on the top level of the parking structure which is open-air and uncovered. Stay safe, no tailgating!
