Artist talk by Cheryl Leontina '18 (Master of Architecture), winner of the 2018 Andries Deinum Prize for Visionaries and Provocateurs. For her project, “Stories Under the Bridge,” Leontina built an artsy bike with wings and rode along Portland’s esplanades to collect personal stories from Portland's houseless community. The resulting exhibit, on view through December 31 in the Broadway Gallery of Lincoln Hall, aims to change public perceptions of houselessness in an effort to bridge the divide between housed and unhoused residents.

Leontina partnered with Outside the Frame, a professional film team mentoring at-risk youth, to interview, photograph, and film those she encountered. The story-collecting bike will be on display, along with documentary shorts showcasing personal portraits and stories of individuals experiencing houselesness.

This event is hosted by PSU’s College of the Arts
