Series Launch! Out of the Mainstream: Brooklyn meets Portland

Monday, February 15, 2010 · 1 Comment

After many weeks of planning, I’m thrilled to introduce Art Hound’s new series, Out of the Mainstream: Brooklyn meets Portland with Cathy McMurray of Habit of Art. (Maps via Ork Posters!)

You may have noticed that both Cathy and I blog about a ton of artists based in Brooklyn and Portland. It’s clear to both of us that these cities (our cities) have incredibly strong creative communities, and this project developed out of our desire to share our ongoing dialogue with all of you. So… every Monday for the next six weeks, Art Hound and Habit of Art will each feature a local artist who embodies the city’s independent art community.


These artist interviews will include the artist’s latest work, reflections about their experience as an artist and their take on the Brooklyn/Portland independent art scene.

The Out of the Mainstream series is intended to be an open dialogue so we invite everyone who has an opinion about local, independent art to join the conversation.
