Portland Winter Light Festival Becomes a City-Wide Celebration

The Portland Winter Light Festival is on! In its third year, the illuminated displays and performances have expanded to infuse light, color, and imagination into several locations around the city. As a “Dazzling Sponsor,” Mayer/Reed helped the festival strategize how to communicate that events reach from Cathedral Park to OMSI and created festival maps to show locations of the activity hubs. The Portland Winter Light Festival is free and open to everyone February 1-3, so get out and add some sparkle to your night.

Demolition at Grant High School Reveals Future Open Spaces

Grant High School in northeast Portland is the third Portland Public Schools high school to be modernized with recent bond funds. Upon completion, it will accommodate over two thousand students and will join recently updated Roosevelt and Franklin High Schools as a state-of-the-art learning environment.After over two years of design, demolition is well under way at the Grant campus. The removal of select, outdated building additions has begun to allow visual and physical connections between the campus and adjacent Grant Park. New vistas of handsome historic facades and mature trees are revealed after decades of obstruction. The site framework we’ve envisioned is beginning to materialize.We look forward to seeing new outdoor spaces for the school and community take shape out of the current landscape of mud and rubble.

Happy Holidays!

This year’s holiday greeting is inspired by traditions old and new. In Mayer/Reed’s early years, we created a series of holiday cards by photographing an object, manipulating the image and overlaying a message. The process, tuned to the tools of the day, was driven by our interest in object, form and the process of making.For 2017 we revisited this approach and took delight in light and shadow studies created by twinkle lights illuminating a scale model of a new M/R holiday tradition – a festive lobby art installation.

Wishing you a magical holiday season filled with your own traditions – old and new.
