The Art of Stormwater on Display Now


The Art of Stormwater exhibit is making its way around to local coffee shops and libraries this spring and summer.  The exhibit showcases many private property stormwater projects that were initiated by residents wanting to help the river by managing stormwater on site.  Private property retrofits are an important part of the Portland's solutions in the Tabor to the River Program area and other parts of town where there are stormwater problems.  Portland Community College –Sylvania, the Art Institute of Portland and Environmental Services partnered to create some of these beautiful photographs, which might provide inspiration for you as the rain falls outside! Look out for the exhibit at the following locations:  


  • ·         February/March: Gregory Heights Library, 7921 NE Sandy
  • ·         March: Café Au Play, 5633 SE Division
  • ·         April/May: OHSU’s Family Medicine Richmond Clinic, 3930 SE Division
  • ·         April/May: Holgate Library, 7905 SE Holgate
  • ·         June: Whole Bowl, 4411 SE Hawthorne
  • ·         July: New Seasons- 7 Corners, 1954 SE Division
  • ·         August: Rain or Shine Coffee House, 5941 SE Division

Are there no plans to share this exhibit on the west side? Interesting that all the places are on the east side, considering that a college on the west side was a partner in creating the exhibit.

That's a good question. Yes, the list is all east side locations through this summer, because we've planned to have it near where there are some large green street projects under construction as part of the Tabor to the River program and other projects. We agree, we'd like to get it on display in other parts of town and will aim for that as we can!
