Time Based Art Festival: Opening Night

  • PICA Patio 15 Northeast Hancock Street Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

TBA Opening Night Block Party BBQ

A convocation for all! Our inaugural and first-ever TBA Block Party BBQ is a chance for artists, audiences, neighbors, and staff to kick off the festival over a casual, celebratory meal, featuring legendary barbecue from Po'Shines. In years past, the Opening Night Dinner was a lovely but exclusive affair. Now celebrating the third year in our home on NE Hancock St., the Block Party BBQ is open to all, an accessible and welcoming shared meal—all are invited!

Come hear what others are excited about, share your schedules, and toast our TBA artists from around the world whose projects, performances, and parties will bring us together for the next ten days. While casual, this gathering around food remains critical. Get fed and feed culture!
