Explore Portland Japanese Garden on Google Arts & Culture

“Profoundly Portland,” a hub on Google Arts & Culture that celebrates and uplifts our community and its cultural institutions.

Portland Japanese Garden was selected as one of 16 partners to celebrate its home city’s thriving cultural scene through the Google Arts & Culture platform. The Garden is proud to be a part of this prestigious project and part of the Google world as it reinforces how we are an indelible thread in our city’s fabric–its history, its culture, and its appeal.

Google Arts & Culture is a digital platform and free mobile app that puts the treasures, stories and knowledge of over 4,000 cultural institutions from 85 countries at one’s fingertips. Alongside other local and renowned organizations such as the Japanese American Museum of Oregon, Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, and Portland Art Museum, we have collectively contributed content to “Profoundly Portland,” a hub that celebrates and uplifts our community. Portland is the first city in the American Pacific Northwest to be highlighted on this platform.

The Oregonian reports that at an April event celebrating the launch of Profoundly Portland, Mayor Ted Wheeler noted that our home city is “a vibrant hub of arts and culture throughout the Pacific Northwest. It’s part of who we are as a community, it defines—in the eyes of many around the nation, and around the world–who we are.”
