In September 2017, a call was released encouraging Pierce County artists to submit existing original portable artworks for consideration of purchase and installation at the new Eastside Community Center. Eastside artists and residents, people who have strong historical connections to the Eastside, people of Indigenous ancestry, and/or people of immigrant and refugee communities are especially encouraged to participate. Media can include, but is not limited to: painting, drawing, works on paper, photography, printmaking, digital, collage, mosaics, fiber, mixed-media, and wall-mountable low-relief sculpture. Interested artists are invited to attend a workshop on October 7 at the Portland Avenue Community Center to learn more.
