Art Takeover is a design show organized by Factory North in partnership with the Timbers Army. Our goal was to gather a selection of the best creatives in the city to help us raise money for our community, specifically our community's next generation. We asked 30 local designers/artists to design art for screen-printed posters in 2012 and classic felt pennants in 2013 with the theme of one of their favorite Timbers Army
song lines. Then we threw a great party with the help of a lot of local businesses and support of the mighty Timbers Army. We sold so much art both years to exceed our goals and raise around 30k for Non-profit organizations; Harper's Playground in 2012 and Operation Pitch Invasion in 2013. We were able to actually see our money at work in our own community.
“Last year they raised enough money with Art Takeover (2012) to build Harpers Playground that is a place where special needs kids can play side by side every other kid.”
