PNCA professor Horatio Law has been one of the participating artists in the Open Circles Project Bird’s Nest Building Workshops at Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) on MLK. To raise awareness around and about Planned Parenthood—the project points out that “Birds make their nests only when they are ready to start a family.”—members of the public are welcome to make nests and decorate them with unique materials that reflect one’s thoughts about home and family. Both the difficult issues and the joy of nurturing a family are equal parts of the reality the project is attempting to explore. Other participating artists, who assist members of the public in their creations, are Anne Greenwood and Sam Nagmay. The nests will become part of the “Open Circles Project” Installation at Place Gallery, Pioneer Place Mall in November.
