We are The Open-Air People's Art Museum (OPAM), a co-op project that aims to transform the neighborhood of Old Town Chinatown into a vibrant and artistic community. We use a digital platform to connect local artists, businesses, and residents, and to showcase their creative works in public spaces. Our mission is to make creativity accessible.


We want to turn our neighborhood into a creative canvas.

Our collective helps emerging artists and promotes creative expression as a means of building community, fostering social justice, and promoting economic growth in our city. We partner with local businesses and organizations to create events and initiatives that bring people together and support the local economy.



 We co-market businesses, creatives, and events in Portland, OR.

We're currently producing a web series that showcases artists and local small businesses. Our expected release date is a February 2024. 



We turn events, permanent art installations, interactive window displays into a third space for residents and tourists to enjoy the creative culture of Portland.

Our expertise lies in connecting businesses with skilled creatives across various disciplines. We help drive traffic to the neighborhood by producing popup shows, window displays, murals, and workshops.
