Weird Homes Tour – Portland
Developed as a new concept, Milepost 5 serves as an affordable housing community for Portland creatives. First and foremost, the complex offers affordable live/work spaces for over artists of all disciplines. And by teaming nonprofit with for profit developers, they helped keep these artists from being priced out in the future. Next, Milepost 5 added galleries, collaborative, meeting and performance spaces. Residents host monthly art openings, present plays, music, readings, workshops, and other events in the community spaces. This makes the complex more than a set of homes but a creative hub for the Portland community.
So come tour this unique blend of living, studio and gallery spaces and check out the artwork. And don’t forget to also meet the interesting artists that reside in this one-of-a-kind community.
