Portland has been given the great honor of being the first city in the United States ever to host the biannual International Women Artists' Exhibition as well as the 84 distinguished female artists from 24 different countries which it brings together for a week of dialogue, collaboration and art.   

Mayor Adams was proud to officially welcome the international group to Portland at an opening reception at City Hall that was marked by regional color including a jug band, local beer from the Oregon Brewers Guild, remarks from the leadership of the Oregon Women's Caucus for Art and, of course, some very hospitable Royal Rosarian ambassadors in full be-caped regalia.  The mayor spoke about the complementary relationship between the exhibition and Portland, given the city's commitment to equity, creativity and cross-cultural understanding before cutting the ceremonial red ribbon and kicking off the festivities.  Fittingly, the reception took place in the building's north atrium underneath the art installation Suspended Migration by artist Dana Lynn Louis.
