Last night’s reading at the Portland Art Museum was an awesome example of multimedia storytelling and collaboration. Lincoln students who worked with WITS writers this past semester spent time at the Portland Art Museum and the Independent Publishing Resource Center to create work that is both inspired by and expressed through visual art.

In addition to slides of student work, there were two zines of student work distributed at the reading. Amy Gray also gave a presentation on the museum’s multimedia collection, Object Stories, and encouraged the audience to participate. Long after the applause was over, there was a buzz of excited conversation. Congrats and thanks to all those who participated!

Thanks to the Portland Art Museum for such a beautiful venue!
