While our favorite part of the night was undoubtedly the packed house, we are still glowing from Charlie Hales’ powerful pledge of support for CAN and our plans to increase public funding for the arts and arts education. To read more about Hales’ “unwavering advocacy” and the most memorable moments of the evening, we recommend DK Row’s coverage of the event.
Co-sponsored by Business for Culture & the Arts, the Creative Advocacy Network, Oregon ArtPAC, Portland Arts Alliance, Portland Art Dealers Association and the Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Candidates Forum on the Arts was beautifully moderated by Portland Monthly Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Randy Gragg and featured Mayoral Candidates Charlie Hales and Eileen Brady as well as City Council Candidates Amanda Fritz, Steve Novick and Brian Sidney Parrott.
