Gustav Sculptor and Richard Cawley Artists In Residence
Manifestation PDX was founded in 2013 by Gustav Sculptor and Richard Cawley. It's a 8,000 sq. ft. Art (ware)House that facilitates and encourages the creation of art and ideas for the beautification and betterment of our world, and a more sustainable future. They build sculptures primarily out of steel, and incorporate as much post consumer waste as possible in their designs. They have built interactive sculptural installations for many art festivals such as: Oregon Country Fair, Portland Winter Lights Festival, Winter Fest NW, What The Festival, and the Burning Man Arts and Culture Festival.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit TED.com to learn more.
