Please read the post a few below this one for all of the details (and please do that), but, again, we will be meeting at 6:15 p.m. Sept. 9 in front of the Portland Art Museum, 1219 S.W. Park Ave., under the giant paint brush, in place of the class on campus that night.
There are many places to park in the area, including a flat lot right next to the museum (but it's a small lot and might be full at that time). Also be aware of the various one-way streets and such you will have to maneuver (and don't forget your car-pooling pals!).
Here is a map of a Smart Park within a few blocks of the venue at 10th and Yamhill (this annotated map is also available to the right, under class materials; and you can check parking availability in real time at that lot at www.downtownportland.org):
If you miss us at the paint brush, don't panic! The Whitsell Auditorium is nearby, right inside the museum, in the basement, and I won't mark you absent until the first show actually begins.
Afterward, we will be walking as a group a couple of blocks to the second venue of the night, the Winningstad Theatre, in the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, 1111 S.W. Broadway.
After the shows, you are free to hang out with classmates or go home or whatever you want to do. I will be making a visual check around, just to make sure everyone stayed through both performances. But there won't be any other formal activities that night.
I will be asking you, though, to comment on what you have witnessed at the PICA festival through the class Google group, as Prompt 2 (see the link for Assignments DUE for details), due before the start of class on Sept. 16. You also will have a translation assignment due that week, which we will go over in class this Wednesday.
You should have ordered your PICA tickets by now. If not, do so right away. The box office, listed in the post below, is open noon to 6 p.m. daily.
