ART CAN is an eco-focused retreat and residency housed in an artfully remodeled 27ft. 1973 Airstream Overlander located in the heart of NE Portland Oregon. Nestled in a lovely private yard with lots of plants, giant trees and a 8' barrel sauna. Steps away you'll find the outdoor shower, privy, firepit and covered outdoor lounge area.
We designed this space for working artists looking for a retreat and/or work space for small projects, research and rest on a weekly basis, but have also opened it up to travelers looking for a place to land in Portland!
