People’s Homes is a collaborative project that honors Portland’s longtime residents and investigates expanded notions of home. We have paired local artists with longtime residents to share their life stories and draw attention to the city’s quickly changing landscape. The artists and homeowners have worked together to create small-scale billboards that represent the elders’ experiences of home.
Produced by Emily Fitzgerald and Molly Sherman, collaborators include Lisa Jarrett, Michelle Swineheart, Patricia Vasquez, Travis Souza, Nolan Calisch and Nina Montenegro
