There is a secret warehouse in Northwest Portland with over 20,000 pieces of art. It includes world class work by renowned figures like Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, and one of the world’s largest collections of work by Andy Warhol. These pieces circulate regularly around the country, shipping out full shows to dozens of museums each year, all without any rental fee.
For two decades Art Beat has traveled the state profiling hundreds of artists, offering a behind-the-scenes look at their creative process and fascinating insight into their work. Best of all, we hear the personal stories behind each one’s individual journey to their craft, learning what drives, inspires and ultimately shapes them as artists.
