Eastside 'Just Us' Stories - East Portland Photo Exhibit
Jade/APANO Multicultural Space -JAMS

We want to explore and document what it's like growing up in Portland and living in East Portland communities, and to capture our families' experiences of displacement and resilience. This project will challenge the notions people have of Portland and of young people of color. We are interested in flipping the narrative and empowering young people of color, as well as creating a safe space in our community to celebrate our diverse identities.

Come and celebrate our hard work on this project! We want to build community with YOU!

Free food. Free admission. Good vibes.

In addition to the photo essay collection, there will be amazing performances by youth and the community!

This event is made possible through the Jade Midway Placemaking Grant!

OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon - OPAL is a community organizing & advocacy organization working with low-income & communities of color to educate, engage & empower.

Piss Trump by James Kelsey
Lucky Lab Beer Hall on Quimby Street


James Kelsey and his team have been working for 6 months on his current Large Format photography project, PISS TRUMP. We don't see a way to post a picture of the final image so here is the description:

  • A Fat, Naked Trump
  • Crucified on a cross
  • His Hair and long red tie floating upward.
  • They are floating upward because the entire sculpture is immersed in a tank of urine.
  • Beautiful 'god light' surrounds trump in a gloriously offensive final photo!


This is a celebration! This is a chance to LAUGH and not be angry for a change. This is a chance to make fun of our ridiculous PEETUS!

Pee-Colored clothing (yellow / orange) is encouraged! PUN pee-signs and signs poking fun at trump in general are the goal.

White Artists Don't Have to Make Work About Racial Identity
PSU Smith Center

White Artists Don't Have to Make Work About Racial Identity | Rakeem Cunningham On display: July 5–28, 2017 Reception: Friday, July 14, 6–8 p.m.

For Los Angeles based artist Rakeem Cunningham, texture has always functioned as a gateway to fantasy. Whether the portal is flowing fabric, animated seamless paper, or free flowing plastic wrap, the dents, crinkles, and crevices of a material’s surface is employed to unmask or cover up self-truths. In 2013, Cunningham came out as a gay man, opening up a whole new world and with it newfound levels of oppression, heartbreak, and discrimination.

This exhibition, entitled “White Artists Don’t Have to Make Work About Racial Identity” navigates the ways in which desire, oppression, humanization, sympathy, self-hate, and emotional apathy are imposed on queer black men through the media, family, romance, and false narratives of hyper-masculinity.


Rakeem Cunningham is a visual artist and videographer based out of Los Angeles, California. Born in 1992, his work explores themes of self-identity, queer politics, identity politics, self-acceptance, and the navigation of body politics under the gay landscape. Cunningham studied Design and Media Arts at UCLA, and frequently collaborates and showcases his work with queer/POC brands and figures such as the LGBT center, Dawn Richard, the FADER, the UCLA new Wight Gallery, Cakeboy Magazine, and the Tenth Zine.

The Littman and White Galleries are student-run exhibition spaces at Portland State University. Our mission is to provide the tools for a critical experience of visual culture through direct exposure to a comprehensive program of contemporary art for students and community members. We envision the Littman and White Galleries as centers for cultural enrichment where an indispensable art experience is accessible to all perspectives and levels of education.
