An Evening with Portland’s Parks Directors

Thu, 17 Jul, 2014 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Legacies in the Making: An Evening with Portland’s Recent and Current Parks Directors

From the Eastbank Esplanade to Jamison Square to Powell Butte Nature Park, Zari Santner during her three-decade tenure at Portland Parks & Recreation shaped the most recent legacy of the city’s plazas and green spaces. Appointed in 2011, current director Mike Abbate is poised to build the next phase of Portland parks, but in much different times. Together, Santner and Abbate will offer an insiders’ view of the history they inherited, the opportunities they’ve made and missed, and their hopes for the future of one of the country’s most respected parks systems.

This event is part of "Force of Nature: Portland’s Parks, Past, Present, and Future," a discussion series in celebration of The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden, on view June 14 - September 21, 2014, at the Portland Art Museum. The series is hosted by Randy Gragg, Director of the John Yeon Center at University of Oregon and Editor at Large for Portland Monthly.

Members free; non-members $20, seniors and students $17. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
