Art Takeover to benefit Operation Pitch Invasion

By Alex Dubov

Looking for something to during a weekend when the Portland Timbers don’t have a match? Look no further than the Art Takeover Pennant Show at Coava Coffee (1300 SE Grand Ave.) in SE Portland.

Art Takeover is a design show organized by Factory North and the Timbers Army. It features the work of 30 local designers and artists who create art that fits one common theme. This year, the artists have created felt pennants with the theme of their favorite Timbers Army song.

From 7AM-6PM at Coava Coffee, 30 prints of each design will be available for purchase. Not only are the pennants a fantastic blend of art and Timbers Army culture, but they will go a long way in helping fundraise for Operation Pitch Invasion’s current project: Bless Field, a 9,000 square foot all-season soccer field designed to promote positive youth and community development.

UPDATE: Widmer Brothers is also getting into the act by auctioning off 50 limited-edition hand-numbered and signed bottles of Green & Gold Kolsch with custom labels. Lots of one-of-a-kind items to be had for sure!

Following the Art Takeover there will be an after party at the event space between Boke and Hair of the Dog Brewing on SE Water Ave from 7-10 PM.
