You all know about Foster’s Second Saturday Art Walk. But who remembers Foster Art Night, its earlier and unrelated incarnation that helped lay the foundation for a regular art event in the ‘hood?
I’m guessing not many.
Today we’re going back a half-decade, a time when Foster was still finding itself, was a little rougher around the edges, and folks were very content with the “unpolished cool” of a mostly-overlooked neighborhood on the fringes of SE Portland…one that had a vibrant-in-its-own-right night life and unlikely arts scene.
Now that I think about it, I miss that Foster.
Much love to the old Foster United crew, Crafty Underdog, and all the people and businesses that supported Foster Art Night back in the day. Here’s a look back at 2012 (click here for the original):
