Jason Sturgill perfectly encapsulates what is RIGHT about the Portland art scene right now: excessively accessible, exclusively inclusive. Sturgill has a background in advertising, design and various curatorial practices. He is the type of person that makes shit happen. His project Art Is Forever is something that should exist in every art museum in the world.

Art is Forever is a project that attempts to foster a more meaningful connection between the art museum and its visitors. Several Portland artists have been selected and given the opportunity to create illustrations inspired by their visits to the Portland Art Museum. These illustrations will be made available as free tattoos on a first come, first served basis throughout the entire day.
