Oregon Episcopal School Opens Free Art Exhibit to Public in Portland on Saturday, February 15, 2020
Saturday, February 15, 2020 -- Sunday, February 16, 2020, 1300 - 1700
I Am My White Ancestors: Claiming the Legacy of Oppression by Portland artist Anne Mavor is designed to spark reflections on identity and family history.

Please join us for a multi-disciplinary installation of 13 life-size photographic self-portraits that explore Anne Mavor's European-American heritage, her family, and their role in the history of race, class, colonization, and genocide. Anne's ancestors, real and imagined, span more than 2,000 years from the Celtic Iron Age to present-day Portland. The 7' x 5' portraits, taken by Anne's daughter, Jane Keating, and printed on fabric panels, are accompanied by short audio diaries from the perspective of each ancestor. Viewers who wish to respond to the work can post at a sharing station. Mavor's exhibit is a collaboration with The Episcopal Parish of St. John the Baptist, part of Oregon Episcopal's continued commitment to build community awareness and ownership of equity and inclusion through storytelling and reflection.
