Spencer Garland is an interdisciplinary artist and educator operating in Portland, OR. Being inspired to pursue film at age 3 out of a deep sense of disenfranchisement and othering, Garland has successfully blended artistic and cultural influences into his work. With a combination of 3D rendering, clothing design, coding, and writing, Garland brings his unique vision of new Black narratives to life. His greatest accomplishment is the formation of his Black art school, BRENDA ARTS.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
