Public invited to view art exhibit from The Living Room at county campus

In celebration of Pride Month during June, the Clackamas County Arts Alliance, through the Youth Arts for Change Program, has organized an exhibition of artwork from The Living Room at the Public Services Building at Clackamas County.

The exhibition, on view through Aug. 1, showcases 10 works of art from members of The Living Room, which provides safe spaces, programming and resources to GLBTQQ youth and their allies.

“The Living Room was fortunate enough to partner with the Youth Arts for Change program to bring these artists together for Pride month,” said Aryn Zanca, Program Coordinator for The Living Room. “We’re looking forward to celebrating this exhibit and the youth who have made it so successful. There are so many amazingly creative young people at The Living Room and we are thrilled to share their talent with the community!”

“We are so excited to continue the mission of the Youth Arts for Change program, collaborating with The Living Room to bring the work of these amazing youth to the public!” said Lisa Smith, Program Coordinator for the Youth Arts For Change Program. “It’s not just a great opportunity for the youth, but an equally incredible chance for the community to share in their artistic accomplishments and voice.”

The public is invited to join Clackamas County and the exhibition partners for a reception on Thursday, June 22, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the county’s Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.
