Portland Street Art Alliance
Advancing street art culture by empowering artists to activate the spaces where we live, work, and play.
Bottom Line for Portland
Since our founding, PSAA has helped create over 300 street art installations, collaborating with hundreds of artists in the region and facilitating commissions resulting in over $950,000 paid to working artists. Street art is inherently democratic; providing access to artistic expression for the entire community, not just a privileged few who have access to museums, galleries, and private art collections. In everything we do, from murals to virtual learning sessions for students, PSAA aims to create strong visual, cultural, and economic impacts through public art.
“I’m so thankful for PSAA for the opportunity to establish myself as a muralist in Portland. I am very impressed with the smooth and professional communication and connections made throughout the process. It is important to me to be a part of a community that supports local art, cultures, individuality, and diversity and puts actions on these values. My first experience of a large-scale mural project was in NW Portland, working with PSAA. They provided the opportunity for local organizations to connect with local artists like myself to make their visions become realities." – Paulina Levaggi, Artist
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At PSAA, diversity, inclusion, and equity drive everything we do. Street art, by its nature, is an inclusive art form that celebrates, promotes, and reflects diverse cultures, heritages, and backgrounds. We strive to ensure that underrepresented artists get paid work opportunities and help facilitate the sharing of their stories, perspectives, and messages through bold public art projects.
