The Dill Pickle Club
Grant Awarded: $7,000
The Dill Pickle Club (DPC) is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization committed to broadening knowledge of the past, present and future of Portland, Oregon. Through field trips, lectures and publications, DPC explores topics of interest to local residents.
Its latest venture, underwritten by this grant, is to sponsor a City Works Poster Series that addresses three questions: How is the city planned? Where does garbage go? And how is justice served? The illustrators for the three posters will be selected by a jury of individuals from civic and design groups and will work with a volunteer committee to research and document each topic. The posters will be distributed free through the Multnomah County Library system.
