October 9-November 23, 2013


This solo exhibition of photographs by Craig Hickman features black-and-white photographs from 1966–1975. As a college student in the Pacific Northwest, Hickman documented scenes of political upheaval,  generational divide, student and community protests, and marches through downtown Portland and the Park Blocks. While capturing this influential moment in our history, he was also influenced by and documenting the people around him – the emerging arts and music scene of Portland in the 1960s and early 1970s.  At times spontaneous, but often carefully planned, Hickman offers us archival portraits of Chris Rauschenberg, George McGovern, Terry Toedtemeier, Clyde Keller, Bobby Kennedy, Jim Blashfield, Bill Plympton, Anne Hughes, Stokley Carmichael and many others.
