PORTLAND,ORE. – On Tuesday, December 9th the Regional Arts & Culture Council will be opening the 18th annual City of Portland and Multnomah County employee art exhibit, all the art that fits. The “salon style” exhibit takes place in the Portland Building Installation Space and is a yearly favorite for both the artists and regular visitors. All types of 2-dimensional artworks are represented in the show, which is a delightful mix of beauty, whimsy, thoughtfulness, and charm.

RACC invites visitors to vote for their favorite artwork as part of the People’s Choice Award. This year’s winner will receive a Producer-level membership to the Hollywood Theatre, generously donated by the theatre for this event. The exhibition will run through Monday, January 5th, and the People’s Choice Award winner will be announced on January 6th, 2015.

For those eligible and interested in participating, submissions must be dropped off Monday, December 8, between 8:00 and 10:00 am, to the Portland Building lobby located at 1120 SW 5th Ave. between SW Main and SW Madison.
