"Cover Story" piece on struggling artists Jessica Tomlinson and Rose Marasco, who are spearheading an effort to provide affordable housing for Portland artists. Marasco and Portland city planner Alan Holt have been meeting for months in hopes of establishing a live/work space for artists currently being forced out of Portland by escalating real-estate prices. The effort sprouted from a roundtable discussion sponsored by the Portland Arts and Cultural Alliance during something they called their Arts Resource Day in May. Tomlinson, who had begun a similar effort of her own, recently joined forces with Marasco and others. The group has recently set its sights on the former Nissen building.
