Field of Opportunity
In the Field of Opportunity we are playing the long game, learning about the site, getting gardens going, looking toward the big picture and experimenting as we go.
Using permaculture and ecological design principles we are growing food and herbs, composting and restoring the land. Volunteers help with land projects, finding themselves renewed by the natural surroundings and getting their hands dirty.
People Blind is an installation by Peg Butler. Originally created for the Portland Building installation Space, it’s now in its second life as a people watching blind facing the Tavern.
El Matador (ensemble member) surfs The Peaks.
The Peaks was created as a part of the 2013 GLEAN artist in residence program, using material pulled from the local waste stream. The entire collection of works created during the residency was inspired by the mountains – and subsequent landscape – of garbage found at Metro’s waste transfer stations. Peaks attempts to reflect and transform this landscape of junk into an odd, yet beautiful caricature.
