Neighborhood Gallery Grant Awardee:
The home was built in 1884, a year after Portland connected to the national railroad network, and three years before the first bridge (the Morrison) was built across the Willamette River. Located on SE 26th Avenue between Clinton and Division Streets, the structure was among the first developments in the city, and is witness to the most recent wave of building and construction in the neighborhood. As such, it is uniquely situated in both location and time to connect the art community and the neighborhood community, as an intervention on a neighborhood that is becoming unrecognizable.

Indivisible’s first year of programming:
Using a home as a cultural palette, the “Hidden Histories” project offers a space that prompts different considerations than that of a traditional gallery. It is a process, we hope, in which artists will consider how to talk about their work with neighbors as well as with other artists, where the risk of widening our community inspires work that is transformative, and where the experience builds common ground.
Indivisible is located on SE 26th Ave between Division and Clinton.
