M.A.S.S. (an ambiguous acronym) is a bimonthly music & performance series set in the beautifully resonant 350-capacity sanctuary at Alberta Abbey, a historic church turned mixed-use venue. Using exceptional sound engineering and equipment provided by Tim Westcott (SIX music series), the aim of the series is to provide a contemplative environment for group and/or anonymous reflection, while cross-pollinating local (and non-local) artists, musicians, writers, and performers.
Funding for this series is generously provided by a grant from the Precipice Fund. The Precipice Fund is administered by the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, with lead support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Calligram Foundation, as part of the Regional Regranting Program of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
