PDX Art out & about: "Art under the bridge" sponsored by DAC DUMBO Arts Center
The free Art Under the Bridge Festival involves the participation of approximately 200 artists from all disciplines of visual art and attracts over 150,000 visitors to the neighborhood of Dumbo each year. The festival is the largest urban forum of its kind for experimental art in the United States and celebrates art that is touchable, accessible and interactive.
The Dumbo Arts Center (DAC) has been the Festival’s exclusive producer since 1997. DAC is a big impact, small non-profit, committed to preserving Dumbo as a site in New York City where emerging visual artists can experiment in the public domain while having unprecedented freedom and access to normally off-limit locations. Art Under the Bridge is where serendipity and the haphazard thrive, where the unpredictable, the spontaneous and the downright weird can still happen - all against the stunning backdrop of iconic architecture and the Manhattan skyline.
