We acknowledge those who have not only contributed to the richness of our community but were willing to share your experience and skills to help us all become better in promoting and presenting the arts to our community.

“Sweet Taste of the Arts” will bring together various disciplines from the artistic community to celebrate the contribution African American/Multicultural artists have brought to the cultural landscape of the State of Oregon.
