What we're about

Hello Portlanders! Art Geeks is a new meetup designed for people who want to check out various kinds of self-consciously 'artsy' events, mostly in the evening.

Although we are proud to be art 'geeks,' we are definitely not art 'snobs'-- and so you'll find us consuming kitsch just as much as the refined, the gritty as well as the classical.

Our events focus on appreciating all different kinds of art production rather than making it, yet all kinds of art hobbyists and professionals should also find interest here.

Many of our gatherings will require you to buy a ticket of some kind, and perhaps even in advance. Almost always, there will be the option to socialize before, during or after whatever art geeky event we attend.

We extend a particular welcome to people who are new to town, but old-schoolers are also warmly welcomed. About once a week, we'll be heading out to some kind of painfully artsy event.

Look for activities like art openings, indie films, dance/theater/performance, live music, and late night dancing at clubs, festivals, and other random art geeky happenings.

Our gatherings will be on the smaller side, under 10 people, so that we can have intelligent conversations as we appreciate the cultural landscape together.
