CAN is pleased to welcome Elly Baldwin: our newest Outreach Volunteer who’s dedication and enthusiasm has already brought hundreds of new supporters to the movement for a new sustainable funding source for the arts in Portland.

Elly grew up attending public school in the Beaverton School District where she had the opportunity to take art classes from an early age. She also comes from a musical household, her father Ken Baldwin played in the Oregon Symphony from 1985 until shortly before his death in 2008, and her mother gives private piano lessons.

She counts herself lucky to have been exposed to so many musical and artistic experiences as a child and to have had the opportunity to continue to develop her love of art at Lewis & Clark College, where she graduated in 2011 with a Studio Art BA, concentrating in painting. Her first show is currently being held at Blackfish Gallery through July 30, 2011.

When asked why she chose CAN, Elly says, “I am thrilled to be volunteering with CAN because I think everyone, especially children, should have these kinds of creative opportunities.”

To join Elly and become a CAN Outreach Volunteer,  contact Keith Daly, Outreach Coordinator at or call (503) 961-3142. ordering tramadol from canada Our Creativity-Rich Economy. Americans for the Arts looks at Multnomah County’s creative industries.
