STREET ART Tours
PSAA offers a variety of cultural immersion street art tours in Portland!
PSAA will be launching immersive Experience Tours, starting in Spring 2018. PSAA has partnered with expert tour leader Meghan Sinnott (Pedalpalooza, Naked Bike Ride) and street artist Matt Schlosky to offer monthly tours of Portland street art. These tours will be an intimate and comprehensive experience, which will not only include touring some of Portland's best art in the streets, but also visiting active painting sites, talking with local artists, listening to special guest speakers, sticker-making, stenciling, and even an aerosol painting tutorial!
We offer bicycle, walking, pedi-cab, or driving tours to meet your preferences and needs. We've led tours for public art events, corporations, media, academics, school groups and more.
We can speak about a range of topics related to street art, graffiti, and politics of public space. We typically provide 2 to 3 expert tour guide leaders, who have experience in community art making, public policy, urban and public space studies.
We can arrange for painting demonstrations and local muralists and content experts to be at tour stops so attendees can hear about the process of creating murals straight from the artists themselves, and learn about things like artistic copyright law, art management, geographies of graffiti, and much more.
SLIDING SCALE PRICING: PSAA is a volunteer-run organization, and we currently do not have grants or funding to support our operations. We run PSAA on donations. Group tour rates vary depending on number of factors (including content, size, timing, etc.). Private individual tours are extremely limited, and will be accommodated if possible. If you are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, please ask about securing a discounted group rate.
