I experience the fifth dimension most intensely in times of change or transition, including pregnancy, childbirth, and new life. I’m exploring that space of intuition that expresses itself during these times of transition and transformation. The use of disposable cameras and instant film allowed for the intuitive compositional choice to be revealed without the obstruction from decision-making and slowing down required in my photographic practice."

Add to my Calendar 2021-10-23 07:00:00 2021-10-22 02:15:07 Deinum Prize Showcase Exhibition: Auditing an MFA "Auditing an MFA" is an exhibition that explores Master Artist Michael Bernard Stevenson Jr.'s journey to earn their Master of Fine Art degree in the Art + Social Practice Program at Portland State University. Master Artist Michael Bernard Stevenson Jr. (MAMBSJ) received the Deinum Prize for Visionaries and Provocateurs in 2020 for their work with the Afro Contemporary Art Class at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School.  The Afro Contemporary Art Class was launched by MAMBSJ in 2020 as an after-school collaborative educational project for students in third through fifth grades. Through hands-on exploration of the work of Afro contemporary artists and leaders, the project enables young students, especially those of African descent, to learn more about the history and context that shapes their lives, culture, and social experience. As part of the Deinum project, MAMBSJ produced a newspaper with support from the Black Art Ecology of Portland to be distributed to the homes of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School students during remote learning. They were invited to present to students remotely through King School Museum of Contemporary Art’s artist in residence program, as well as to do programming entitled Afro Futurist February for Black History Month. MAMBSJ’s work in this award period recently culminated in the offering of Fred Hampton Summer Camp at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School, with support from Vanport Mosaic and Portland Public Schools. In this exhibition, which chronicles the Afro Contemporary Art Class at King School and other projects, MAMBSJ draws the viewer's eyes to and through a deeper labyrinth of content that sits just barely under the surface of the Master Artist’s practice: the bureaucracy. Having collected their receipts for the entirety of their degreeing period, MAMBSJ challenges viewers to juxtapose the creative practice with the costs incurred to do the work, the monies earned from doing it, the debts accrued to receive their title, and the culminating audit of these fiscal categories as seen in their federal tax return statements. The exhibition will be on display from September 27 through December 10 in the Broadway Gallery in Lincoln Hall, with an Artist Talk on October 1, at 5:00 P.M. in Lincoln Recital Hall, Room 75. The Artist Talk is free and open to the public, but all guests must register to obtain a ticket. Seating is limited to the first 150 guests. Register for the Artist Talk on October 1. Guests are required to wear face masks at all times indoors regardless of vaccination status in accordance with Oregon and Portland State University policies. Sanitation stations are available in Lincoln Hall.  Read more. Image: Former Black Panther Kent Ford speaks with students in the Fred Hampton Summer Camp at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School.

Add to my Calendar 2021-10-22 11:30:00 2021-10-22 12:30:33 Friday Transportation Seminar: Transportation Planning in Tribal Communities: From Plan Development to Implementation Friday Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. You can join us online at 11:30 AM. Stay tuned for an announcement of the fall term lineup. THE TOPIC Existing studies surveying transportation planners in Tribal communities have recognized two challenges: (1) that existing planning analysis tools do not always align with Tribal community context and needs, and (2) that it is not always clear what benefits planning provides to transportation project selection and delivery in Tribal communities. These challenges are outlined in a 2020 FHWA Research Needs Statement titled Making Transportation Planning Applicable in Tribal Communities. This study, therefore, seeks to align available planning analysis tools to Tribal community needs based on a range of contextual factors, and to quantify the benefits of planning analysis in the project selection and delivery processes. Additionally, this study seeks to ensure that any findings optimize Tribal Transportation Program funding decision-making in Tribal communities. The audience for the study is primarily Tribal planning staff and, secondarily, FHWA’s Office of Tribal Transportation staff and other federal agencies and partners. KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES Learn how Tribes align planning tools to the specific Tribal planning need. Discuss the challenges and opportunities Tribes face ensuring long-range transportation plans are implementable by Tribal staff. Learn how Tribal communities link planning phase to project design, construction, and maintenance. SPEAKER Cole Grisham, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Western Federal Lands Cole Grisham is a Transportation Systems Planner with FHWA Western Federal Lands. His work focuses on long range transportation planning, particularly in the areas of regional and intergovernmental policy in the American Northwest. Cole is a certified planner through the American Planning Association and hold a B.A. in Political Science and M.U.P. in Regional Planning from the University of Michigan. He is also currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Public Affairs from Portland State University, focusing on regional planning and policy in Tribal communities. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT This 60-minute seminar is eligible for 1 hour of professional development credit for AICP (see our provider summary). We can provide an electronic attendance certificate for other types of certification maintenance. LEARN MORE Photo by Konoplytska/iStock Sign up for our newsletter to receive monthly updates.
