The Art Department: Lazer Hotel

June 13—August 5, 2012

The Art Department is a nonprofit outsider art gallery, working studio, screening space and retail store for artists with intellectual and developmental uniqueness in downtown Portland.

The front gallery at the ICA has been transformed into a magazine office for a new project called the Lazer Hotel Magazine, a print publication created and printed by artists of The Art Department. From start to finish, they will create their first edition, working on content, organizing layout, writing, drawing, typing, mapping out, photographing, interviewing, critiquing, predicting horoscopes, making crossword puzzles, comic strips, printing and reproducing.

You are welcome to step inside, ask questions, touch everything, and participate in the creative process.
