Portland, OR

The Portland Veterans Book Workshop was hosted by Portland State University’s Art and Social Practice Program. The workshop took place at FIELD WORK, a collaborative space shared by PSU’s MFA Contemporary Art and Graphic Design programs. FIELD WORK seeks to advance creative exploration while incorporating the public’s voice. The following bookmakers participated: Jon Beerli, Don Hirsch and Ehren Tool (from afar). Past book-makers, Pamela Olson and Mary-Ann Rich, traveled to Portland as volunteer editors and organizers. They have since started their own project that simultaneously navigates and questions the Veterans Affairs system. Please check back to see the final books.
