Art at Work is a national initiative created by the nonprofit Terra Moto and led by theater artist Marty Pottenger to improve municipal government through strategic arts projects with municipal employees, elected officials, and local artists. In Portland, the initiative has fostered a culture of collaboration directly involving more than 100 city employees and more than 50 local artists to create hundreds of original artworks, performances, poetry readings, and civic dialogues that have engaged more than 25,000 people in the region and reached millions more through media outlets.
