Our Mission


Artists' Milepost exists to serve the needs of artists and creatives in East Portland, first and foremost, the residents of Milepost 5.  Everything we do is approached with the intention to:

  • Enhance the creative experience of Milepost 5 Residents by connecting burgeoning artists with needed resources such as continued education, studio space, show rooms, grants, and advancement opportunities.
  • Provide our East Portland neighbors with transparent access to the arts, artists, and art education.
  • Establish Artists' Milepost and its three working spaces - our theater, gallery, and cafe - as a vital hub for the arts in East Portland.
