ACTION Art Residency

ACTION hosts traveling guest artists from time to time in our 13'x13' flex space. Artists in residence have 24-hour access to the studio, our common areas: kitchen, living room (projector, VCR/DVD player, Nintendo!), and take part in our small art community for a week or two. If you're visiting Portland and need a temporary work space, give us a shout!
