The Free Life Center is coming to the Greenwood collective.

Back story

"Mark Warren Jacques and Seth Neefus are two Portland-based artists embarking on a dream. Free Life Center houses their optimism and creativity, and you are invited to join them as they take their mobile art center on a nomadic journey.

Inspired by the community of free thinkers around them, they bring knowledge of earthy spirituality and simplicity to encourage others to share the "free life" through hosting an experience of music, art, skillshare, storytelling, and creativity.

Free Life Center is a large scale freestanding installation crafted from salvaged building materials. The one-room structure emanates the artists' homespun aesthetic and their commitment to a high level of DIY craftsmanship....

Moksha Art Opening: Spring Snow - Light Bedtime Stories by Sly Cooley

Friday, May 21, 2010

"The Russian story of "Little Snow Girl" is one where there is the pure young girl being hunted by various creatures who want to eat her. She was made from the last spring snow and the first spring sun, on the heartfelt wish of a sterile old couple who lived in the woods. The original story itself is cute, and innocent for the most part. The little snow girl is pure and innocent, but learns quickly how evil the creatures of the forest can be before she's rescued by her trusty old dog. In my depiction, the all-too-pure main character, is not as pure as one would think and has her way with handling the "evils" of the forest." -Sly Cooley Read More
