Hello Lovers of Art, Books, and Spooky things ! This is your friendly PDX Artist letting you know about some upcoming events around town.
1. Starting Wednesday, April 23 The Portland Art Museum will have unlimited free access to persons under 17 years of age. This is possible due to a generous endowment from an anonymous donor in the Portland area. That means if you’re a school teacher and you have your 30 + kids and you want a docent lead tour it’ll still be $2.50 a head. Yet, if you just bring your school group by and just ‘buy’ tickets at the door sans docent lead tour it is free for all your students.
2. May 1-4th Portland State University’s Library is having a Book Sale! Sweet! Portland State University's award-winning opera program will present Puccini's La Bohème for its annual spring production. Joined by internationally renowned stage director Tito Capobianco, students will perform one of the world's most loved operas in honor of Puccini's 150th birthday. Tickets range from $25-$12.
3. May 3rd La Mode Macabre is coming to the Fez featuring a dark bohemian fashion show, Hands of Kali belly dance trope, and local and regional vendors. You won’t want to miss this event! Tickets are available in advance ($12) and at the door ($15).
