Nick speaks with PBA's Leadership Portland class

December 10, 2009

On Thursday, December 10, Nick addressed PBA's "Leadership Portland" participants as part of their workshop on "Cultural Arts & the Creative Community."

He spoke about his experience with St. Mark's in New York, his role on the Board of the Oregon Cultural Trust, and what he, along with his Council colleagues, are doing to support the arts in Portland.

Of particular note, he told the story of world renowned landscape architect Lawrence Halprin's fountains in downtown Portland and the newly-established partnership between the Halprin Landscape Conservancy and the City to designate the Halprin Sequence a National Historic Landmark.
