WITH/AND: MFA IN CRAFT THESIS EXHIBITION
MAY 15 – MAY 27 | PDX CONTEMPORARY, UPFOR
Opening Friday, May 15
With implies merging (coffee with cream), while And conveys a quality of autonomous association (salt and pepper). WITH/AND, the Oregon College of Art and Craft inaugural Thesis Exhibition of the MFA in Craft, explores the intersectional nature of Art and Craft, revealing a space where ill-defined boundaries touch or blur.

Siren, the female artist-founded dating app, is breaking the static, swipe-to-reject mold. Siren has an amazing shot to fix what's broken with shopping-for-humans, aggressive messages, and lack of respect for people.
Daily ice-breakers to lead with personality.
Women sharing their photos with the men they choose--like catching someone's eye in real life.
And a Siren Call for women to see who's up for fun in the moment.
