Your investment and involvement allows PICA to present bold, new work by artists creating across disciplines and beyond genres; to connect diverse audiences to boundary-pushing ideas, experiences, and expressions; and to engage local and global communities in discovering, creating, and responding to our cultural movement.

PICA is Portland's leading presenter of multidisciplinary, experimental contemporary art, recognized locally, nationally and internationally for challenging and engaging year-round programs and the world-renowned Time-Based Art (TBA) Festival. Our forward-thinking artistic events, educational activities, and community engagement initiatives would not be possible without the ongoing support and participation of artists, audiences, and art patrons like you.
