Carmen Rubio and Mingus Mapps
Rubio, a Portland city commissioner, serves as the city’s arts and culture commissioner. Mapps, a Portland city commissioner, serves as the city’s liaison to Travel Portland and the Portland Film Office. Both joined the Portland City Council in 2021.
Over the past few months, we’ve had the privilege and joy of attending live, in-person arts events: “The Chinese Lady” play, opening night of the Oregon Symphony, Pink Martini’s Valentine’s Day show and the new Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism exhibition at the Portland Art Museum.
We’ve been in good company.
