It’s been a big month for Social Practice Art, aka the “no more snootiness, let’s get everybody onboard” strategy of arts curation. First there was The People’s Biennial at TBA, (which closes this weekend), then there was last week’s FlashMob performance of Marian The Librarian at the Central Library, and tonight, PAM gets in on the action, hosting Shine A Light, an evening of accessible adventure, within its vaunted halls.

Says Wampire frontman (and natural cheerleader) Rocky Tinder, “There’s so much rad stuff going on at this show! I’ve never been to one of these yet but people have been telling me it’s super rad! Weird happenings throughout the whole museum. Food and beer too. Not bad, Portland Art Museum.”
