97116 is an art show collaborative concept between artist friends Emily Lux and April Hoff. We’re intent on bringing a fresh view of available local art, a venue for the fringe and underrepresented, and an event the whole town and surrounding communities can look forward to each year. Creators, we hope that even if you aren’t labeling yourself as an artist, you will submit. Community members and businesses, we would love to collaborate with you to make this just one of many impressive things Forest Grove has to offer.
Paint the Town is tentatively postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19
