The Art of Stormwater, a collection of artistic photographs of green infrastructure around the city, is currently being displayed at the St. Johns Community Center (8427 N Central St) and the Charles Jordan Community Center (9009 N Foss Ave) in North Portland.

The collection shows the beauty of green infrastructure techniques that are designed to soak up stormwater, reduce flooding, filter pollutants, and ensure clean rivers. The exhibits will be up until December 28th in St. Johns and until mid-January at the Charles Jordan Community Center.

Stormwater practices displayed in such artistic fashion allows the viewer to rethink rain, where it goes and how it touches us all through a watershed. These functional designs that filter stormwater foster a healthier city for all of us. Enjoying them as beautiful and smart elements in our daily lives foster our imagination to think and act for the common good. Thank you for this wonderful exhibit!
