The Portland Art Museum is highlighting “Black Artists of Oregon” collectively for the first time. The exhibition captures Black diasporic experiences in the Pacific Northwest, dating from the 19th century to present day. The exhibition is filled with artwork full of love, joy, anger and darkness from almost 70 Black artists, and remains through March 31.
