plein air smackdown is a part of the open engagement conference

From May 14th through the 17th Portland will host Open Engagement: Making Things, Making Things Better, Making Things Worse. This conference says it will challenge our traditional ideas of what art is and does. It will present artists, projects and events which will mediate the contemporary frameworks of art as service, as social space, as activism, as interactions, and as relationships.

One of the events is Plein Air Smackdown, the brainstorm of Mark R. Smith who teaches at PCC. Painting students from PCC, PSU and OCAC will have a painting competition of sorts.
