Community Music Center

The Community Music Center, in a decommissioned firehouse in Southeast Portland, is approaching its 50th anniversary of providing community music lessons. To celebrate, they’re distributing loved-to-death musical instruments to artists all over town. Visual artists do some funny things with the tools of the musicians’ trade.
