Field of View Artist Residency Program

Field of View is an artist residency program placing visual artists with developmental disabilities* in three-month-long artist residencies throughout the Portland community. The goals of this project are to help artists with disabilities gain access to spaces and communities that they have not been able to access before, provide artists with developmental disabilities with more visibility and opportunity for connection and exchange with new communities, and help them develop their professional practice and gain broader audiences for their work.

Field of View 2017 was spearheaded by artists Carissa Burkett and Lauren Moran and made possible by the Precipice Fund. We at Public Annex are so excited to take on the Field of View artist residency as another wing of our own programming in 2018 thanks to the Oregon Community Foundation
