Open House at the Center for Native Arts and Cultures

NACF

Please join the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) for a day of activation at the new Center for Native Arts and Cultures! The Open House event at the Center provides an opportunity to view NACF’s inaugural exhibition, “Where the Waters Come Together,” meet NACF staff, and hear about future plans for the Center of Native Arts. Visitors can participate in various art activations throughout the building as well as witness performances by Indigenous artists.

NACF took ownership of the historic Yale Union building in Southeast Portland, Oregon, on February 26, 2021. We are excited to open this vibrant gathering space to the public with this community event in conjunction with our new exhibition. We look forward to seeing you!
