Orchards Curatorial Committee: I AM HOME (2021)
Rebecca Copper reading, I AM HOME art show description, APANO & O82, 2021
In the Spring 2021, I joined the Orchards Curatorial Committee (renamed 082 Art Crew) to cultivate artwork and social practice projects with the residents of Orchards of 82nd. We worked with the residents to draw their portraits after talking with them about how they make home and what was important to them when they think about home. After many pop-ups to catch the residents as they entered into the building and having some great conversations, we completed the portraits and hung in the entry way to the building between 082 and APANO in East Portland.
At the end of the show, each resident got their own portrait delivered to their house. These are some examples of the works I did with the residents.
