New Oregon Arts & Letters

New Oregon Arts & Letters is a nonprofit organization that enjoys both adverbs and adjectives. We are:


IMPECCABLY ENMISSIONED.

New Oregon Arts & Letters creates and presents arts, literature, and media. Our programming encourages collaboration, supports interdisciplinary practices, and contextualizes creative culture. We are committed to fostering innovation, integrity, and critical dialogue across a broad range of communities.


SERENDIPITOUSLY SUPPORTED.

We are deeply thankful to the artists, writers, designers, performers, nonprofiteers, donors, sponsors, & adventurers who make our programming possible. We'd also like to thank the following for grants & fiscal support:


  • RACC, the Regional Arts & Culture Council
  • Oregon Arts Commission
  • Oregon Community Foundation
  • Equity Foundation


EFFICACIOUSLY OFFICIOUS.

Our EIN number is 93-1313866. Founded as 2 Gyrlz Performative Arts in 2000, we received our 501c3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service the following year. In 2009, we changed our name to New Oregon Arts & Letters. 


ENVIABLY ENDED.

We're closing our lovely nonprofit. Please visit neworegon.org in 2017 as we build an archive of our history and the photography of Steven Fritz.
