Title: Making a Scene: The Impact of Locality and Place on Contemporary Artistic Practice in Portland, OR
Author: Whittaker, Susan Adele
Abstract: Previous studies have shown the importance of a cultural society, including the positive impact the arts make on communities and the subsequent benefits of a thriving arts community. The purpose of this study was to emphasize that in order for a community to thrive in arts and culture, it must be inviting to artists as invigorating and stable, providing a wide range of accessible resources and opportunities, as well as demonstrating a genuine interest in advancing contemporary art within its geographic region. In acknowledging this, this research served as an in-depth study of Portland, Oregon, in identifying what infrastructures and systems, both informal and formal, exist for visual artists and to what extent does that influence and sustain future artistic research and creation in the contemporary arts.
