PDX Bridge Festival Creative Director Tucker Teutsch 3.0Tucker Teutsch 3.0, Creative Director

PDX Bridge Festival’s creative director and project leader, Tucker Teutsch 3.0, has extensive experience in logistics, installations and public art management for large community events. Most recently, he was lead site manager and logistics coordinator for Symbiosis 2009, a festival drawing over 10,000 people to a 100+ acre property in the heart of Yosemite Valley, where he managed all heavy equipment used in big art builds, power grids, and ambient/safety lighting for the event. Prior to his work on PDX Bridge Festival, he successfully executed Basura Sagrada, the 2008 Community Temple Installation at Burning Man, which draws a crowd of over 40,000 participants. His responsibilities included the management of 200 crewmembers and oversight of a $115,000 budget. Teutsch’s 2007 project, the Tasseograph: Trash Tea Temple, was a collaboration with artist Shrine and functioned as a traveling exhibit that was seen by more than 150,000 people during 12 festival-site installations before being bought by a private collection in Marin County. Teutsch prides himself on being a writer, craftsman, builder, networker, and project manager. He is excited to bring his knowledge of festival logistics and large-scale art fabrication to the center of Portland.

Jessica Klinke, Managing Director Jessica Klinke, Managing Director

A leader of PDX Bridge Festival’s non-profit, Jessica Klinke has served as the Board Chair since co-founding the organization in September 2009. Prior to moving to Portland, she worked as a fundraiser for a long-standing and successful land trust on the San Francisco peninsula, helping them complete a $200 million capital campaign. For the last two years, Ms. Klinke has partnered with Teutsch on a range of projects, most notably as the business and funds manager for Basura Sagrada, where she developed and managed the $115,000 budget for and played a major part in raising over $70,000 from individual and in-kind donations for the project. Additionally, her experience includes program management for arts-in-education programs and independently produced audio documentaries and radio programming. With a master’s degree in folklore and eight years of non-profit experience, Ms. Klinke is thrilled to put her skills to use for PDX Bridge Festival.mobile online rpgпроверять сайт на вирусыкласнолом полная версия скачатьвзломать почтовый ящик gmailобразец заявление анкета на получение потребительского кредитаoyun slotAmsterdam escorts

Events July 17 through August 29

Installation of a temporary public artwork later this month will transform the Broadway Bridge as part of a multifaceted celebration culminating in an August 10 block party for the Broadway’s 100 birthday. Beginning Sunday, July 21, the first of four multicolored, hand-knitted banners, 18’ x 21’ each, will be installed–with the help of the Multnomah County Bridge Section–to hang on the outside of the draw spans of the Broadway Bridge for the piece titled Bridge for Blankets, which will be up through the month of August. The artwork, conceived and organized by local artist Tyler Mackie, uses partially donated materials (chief among them, the Cascade 220 Superwash Wool, purchased with in-kind support from Cascade Yarns and Abundant Yarn Co.), and harnesses the time and talent of roughly 150 volunteer knitters to create Portland’s largest knitted art installation to date. After the festival the banners will be washed, divided into 42 separate afghans (each one 6′ square), and donated to local warming shelters via Human Solutions and Sno-Cap.

The Bridge for Blankets project is part of this year’s PDX Bridge Festival, a string of events that kicked off last April and that leads up to a block party on August 10th from 12pm-7pm, at NW 9th and Hoyt.  This is a fitting art installation to celebrate the Broadway Bridge’s 100 year presence and what it brought and brings to the fabric of Portland.    Opening up the bridge between the music and clubs of the east side to the exotic life and associations of the west side in addition to the cuisines of both, enhanced this city’s development.  We are a better place to live because of it.

The block party will have music, dancing, displays of model bridges built by local area elementary school students, bridge tours led by Sharon Wood Wortman and Ed Wortman, a bridge art show, Radio Disney activities for children, and vendors of food, art, and crafts.  The block party is a National Night Out event, and will also include displays and other information about neighborhood safety and crime prevention. The outdoor venue is conveniently located near MAX, Portland Streetcar, bus lines, and a smart park garage.

At the August 10th event, information will also be available on the new Sharon Wood Wortman/Ed Wortman project: The Big & Awesome Bridges of Portland and Vancouver—A Book for Young Readers & Their Teachers, of which PDX Bridge Festival is a sponsor. At over 100 pages and brimming with illustrations, this book about the bridges of Portland and Vancouver is a massive undertaking, and is being developed as a text book–distributed for free–to be used as class sets for Portland Public Schools’ third grade classrooms and to Vancouver public school libraries.

The Broadway Bridge, maintained and cared for by Multnomah County, was the first bascule bridge over the Willamette River and the longest bridge of its type in the world when it opened on April 22nd, 1913. It is one of Portland and Vancouver’s three highway century bridges, along with the 2010 Hawthorne Bridge and the 2012 Steel Bridge. At river mile 11.7, the Broadway Bridge provides a unique and critical link for the businesses and neighborhoods in and near the Rose Quarter with those in and near the Pearl District. PDX Bridge Festival, a 501c3 charitable and educational organization, has celebrated the bridges that connect us all since 2010.

WHO & WHAT: PDX Bridge Festival, a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization, is calling for proposals from individuals, organizations, businesses, and government agencies for activities and events to celebrate the Broadway Bridge’s 100th birthday in 2013. Proposals should also include sources of funding, as well as strategies for achievement of the proposed event, such as timing, equipment and volunteers needed, etc.
