Avenues of Art: Billions and Billions of People

Avenues of Art event_TMT Development_Portland_OregonAvenues of Art returns this year with the Billions and Billions of People auction in Director Park on June 25th from 5:00 -8:00 pm. Up for auction at the event are the colorful, hand-painted panels that made up the Billions and Billions of People public art installation that once surrounded the Park Avenue West construction site.

Commissioned by President & CEO of TMT Development, Vanessa Sturgeon in 2011 to help beautify the site, these panels were painted by local artists and homeless youth served by New Avenues for Youth.  Sturgeon currently sits on the Board of Directors for New Avenues for Youth, a non-profit that her grandfather, Tom Moyer,  helped found. The organization helps to empower homeless youth  to exit street life.  TMT Development is proud to have provided real life, paid job training for this project and continues to support the mission of New Avenues for Youth.

A few select panels currently on display in the lobby of Fox Tower.
