The Enduring Legacy of the WPA in Portland

Sat, 22 Jun, 2013 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Join us for a pedal tour of Works Progress Administration (WPA) sponsored projects in Portland and hear from leading authorities on the subject. Visit and learn about the extensive WPA art collection at the Portland Art Museum and public works such as Paul Grellert’s mural at the Morrison Street post office, Skidmore Fountain, and Woody Guthrie Circle.

Tour departs from the Portland Art Museum courtyard. This ride is also offered June 15.

Co-organized with Know Your City and held in conjunction with the monthlong citywide cycling celebration Pedalpalooza. For more information, visit www.shift2bikes.org.

About Summer Joyrides: The summer months are the best time to get on a bike and enjoy Portland. Our leisurely bike field trips are designed to be a fun and easy way to see some art and architecture, while also learning something about our thriving community of bicycle designers and creative transportation thinkers.

Space is limited; advance registration is required. $10 members, $20 non-members (includes Museum admission).

Don’t have a bike of your own? No problem. Portland State University Bike Hub will rent you an easy-to-ride and comfortable bike for an extra $15. Bikes will be picked up and dropped off at the Museum where rides begin and end, so it’s hassle free. Make your bike reservation online when you reserve your Joyride ticket.
