Artists' Milepost & Milepost 5

Milepost 5 is a community for creatives, developed for working artists of all disciplines. Occupying two buildings on a two-acre campus in the Montavilla neighborhood, our community of more than 100 residents work in dozens of artistic fields. To learn more, visit their website at

Artists' Milepost is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), formed to support the needs of the artists at Milepost 5.  We utilize the income generated in our gallery, community space, and theater to bring high-quality creative growth experiences to both the residents of Milepost 5 and the East Portland Community.  These include programs, workshops, networking events, and continued education.

We bring art to light.  From visual and sound installations to plays, music, readings, and crafts; we host public events that nourish creativity.
