Dog Park

They put leashes on our hearts, walk our spirits, and run down the paths and sidewalks of our memories.

Join us in this visual celebration of the dogs that have curled up in our lives and that have contributed so much to our laughter and tears.

Fred Swan & Stan Peterson join forces to bring us – Dog Park – a gathering of nearly eighty pieces of work by 30+ Portland artists. Art, videos, stories, laughter, food, and fun. Come. Sit. Wag your imaginations and memories while we fetch your spirits back from the brink.

Tales in the Dog Park

Saturday, March 18th
1 – 3 PM

Join us for this storytelling event about the dogs that have curled up in our hearts and meet some of the artists of the Dog Park show.

The Ford Gallery is hosting an early afternoon gathering of listening and storytelling. We’re inviting you to see the Dog Park show and join us with a story about a dog that wags its tail around your house or in your memories. Stories should be 3 – 5 minutes in length and child friendly. Though an informal event, please try to arrive near the beginning.
