East Coast meets West Coast
In December, our Editor-in-Chief Stephen Perloff and Contributing Editor Naomi Mindlin visited our West Coast branch, which also happens to be a coffeeshop. Cressa Perloff, Contributing Editor and Communications Director, and Katie Foltz, West Coast intern, work in marketing and website management for The Photo Review in Eugene, Oregon.
Every month, Perk hosts a community art exhibit. The art you see on the walls is by Cherisse Pacheco, a woman who creates art daily despite the neural damage she suffered from an accident many years ago. She is involved in the Oregon Supported Living Arts and Culture program, which helps people with disabilities learn and express themselves through art in various media.
