Alumni earn praise for innovative artistic collaboration
September 09, 2010
Four studio art alumni are making waves in the Portland art community after converting a massive boat into a gallery and workspace on the Willamette River.
Zoë Clark, Lewis Feuer, Kyle Thompson, and Caitlin Ducey—all members of the class of 2009—debuted the Labrador Project in April. The 135-foot vessel, which was originally used in WWII, now functions as a site for creative collaboration and a display space.
After building a gallery space, titled 12128, on the deck of the Labrador, the collaborators held a show of their own diverse works in May. This month, the gallery is hosting a guest-curated exhibit called Watersports.
