Friday not only did we hold our office holiday party, but afterwards I got to be a guest at the VIP reception for the Portland Winter Light Festival that Autodesk is a proud local sponsor of. I met the organizers of the event as well as some of the artists. This is the 3rd or 4th year of the event held along the river in public areas and it is free. There are over 100 artists with displays and this year the ship Portland Spirit will give free rides across the Willamette River.

I am particularly interested in the Tesla Coil installation that will be located near OMSI on the Eastside of the river.

Hope to see you there!

When: February 1st, 2nd, 3rd 2018
Where: Downtown Portland Oregon along the rivers East and West bank.

For next years event Autodesk might do something with the new Autodesk Portland office for the festival bedazzling it with local artist light displays. We move in on April 16th, 2018.
