Recognized as a catalyst for the fusion of fashion with art, Upper Playground is located in the heart of Portland’s Old Town/Chinatown district. Upper Playground produces apparel and merchandise featuring designs from some of the finest local, national, and international artist and graphic designers.
Also at this location is the Fifty 24 PDX Gallery; an exhibition space inside the retail store. Our interests as a gallery lie mainly in contemporary illustrative, low-brow, graffiti and/or street art genres. Each month we participate in the neighborhood First Thursday reception, in which local galleries and art institutions host opening receptions for month-long art exhibitions. Through these exhibitions we aim to showcase relevant and exciting art on an accessible platform.
