2016 Artists and Mentors Announced

We’re happy to announce eight artists selected by our jury from an outstanding pool of applicants as Prequel’s 2016 cohort. Starting Monday, May 23rd, we’ll meet with these eight artists throughout the summer, engaging in conversations around topics ranging from writing an artist statement to art and activism, as well as taking some trips to explore what else is happening in the region. We’re looking forward to getting to know everyone and sharing their work with Portland.

We’re also pleased to have an amazing crew of mentors joining us this year, listed below. Thanks to all who applied and congrats to the following artists:
