Summer classes include: "Enchanted Objects" (July 18 to 25), where participants will create objects that make music, illuminate in response to stimulation, reveal hidden stories and spark imaginations. "Augmented Storytelling" (August 1 to 12), which will encourage participants to create stories of our city and community using existing markers (such as stickers or statues), sparking real and imagined experiences that reveal new ways of seeing the world. In "Interactive Murals/Interactive Installations" (August 8 to 23), students will create hybrid physical, digital and virtual images that respond to a person's presence, gestures and actions, revealing historical and speculative stories of our communities and spaces. An information session will be held on Tuesday, July 12, 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. Learn more and apply to participate.

Add to my Calendar 2022-08-25 19:30:00 2022-08-25 21:00:00 OrpheusPDX: The Fall of the House of Usher When a man visits his ill childhood friend Roderick Usher after many years apart, he is shaken to his core by the foreboding atmosphere and sense of evil that pervades the household and its inhabitants. His attempts to understand and address the literal and figurative “illness” that permeates Usher’s house fail at every turn, and he is unable to deter Usher, his sister Madeline, and the house itself from their swift descent into the abyss. The hauntingly beautiful and strange music of Philip Glass perfectly captures every nuance and inner nerve of this powerful story by Edgar Allan Poe.
