The Dill Pickle Club, Portland’s creative cultural club, has launched a project to create a guidebook to African American public art in Portland: Walls of Pride.
Walls of Pride will feature full-color photos of over a dozen works of public art. Included is a detailed map, interviews with artists Isaka Shamsud-Din and Adriene Cruz, a transcribed conversation between curator Robin Dunitz and history professor Reiko Hillyer, mural descriptions and artist biographies, and a bibliography.
The book project was inspired by the reception to the club’s November Tour of African American Public Art. For the full story, watch the video for the project at Kickstarter, and consider a pledge!
