The Big Picture
The big picture is a collective art project where people in our local area and around the world are collaborating to create a big mosaic picture from thousands of drawings.
This project outlines the connections between individuals from all around the world and can be seen as a giant conversation taking place between all the participants and us through a dynamic and monumental art work.
We are interested in learning more about you: where you are coming from and where you are living now.

Faith in the Flesh
"Over the years, tattoos have evolved from antisocial defiance to general fashion statement. Models, movie stars and public figures wear them. People of faith, too. We invite you to explore people's relationship to faith and spirituality through tattoos and the stories behind them. 'To have a faith-based tattoo is to literally incarnate your faith upon your person. Through story and art, we can see what faith looks like in the mundane, in the everyday.'" Rev. Abigale Buckley
Portland Metro Episcopal Campus Ministry (PMECM) invites you to a fabulous photo exhibit entitled “Faith in the Flesh.” Sponsored by PMECM through a grant from The Episcopal Church, this exhibit opens at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral on September 17 and runs through November 5. This unique show explores spirituality through tattoo art featuring the work of celebrated photographer and Trinity member Danny Bronson. With images and accompanying written stories in this free exhibit, we hope to share the deep meaning associated with spiritual body art.
PMECM always looks for new ways to connect with young adults and students. Tattoos have a special way of sharing life stories as the cultural status of tattoos has steadily evolved from an anti-social activity to a form of self-expression. Today it is not unusual to find tattoos on fashion models, movie stars and public figures. But what about the church? What about the unspoken homilies that body art preaches every day? We thought it could be fun to share spiritual tattoo art and spur conversations about faith through this exhibit.
We hope to see you at Faith in the Flesh, and look forward to sharing art and faith stories with the broader community. If you are interested in more information about PMECM we would love to grab a cup of coffee or lunch! For more information contact Marlene@trinity-episcopal.org.

Papirmass: Collage Scrap Exchange
The theme for the Collage Scrap Exchange is New Landscapes. March 15, 2015.
THE INSTALLATION: The intent of the piece is to allow any artists that work under any level of anonymity to show their face publicly, which is one of the the most vulnerable states for such an artist. The addition of the orgasm adds a more intimate and controversial detail to the photographic work. The photos will go uncredited. This will be the first time that many of these artists faces will be seen in public, anonymously, as the focus of a collective work. It will involve images of artists and people from all walks of life.
