The Future

Normally this is where we would be announcing the next No Bones For Halftones event, however, after much deliberation, those responsible for coordinating this event have decided this was most likely the last year for No Bones. We sincerely hope that those who attended any of our events enjoyed their experiences and your smiling faces is why we enjoyed bringing art to the community for four great years!

One last thank you to the volunteers and sponsors of year four, we obviously couldn’t have done it without you!

The event

No·Bones     phrase  /ˈnō·ˈbōnz/

  1. No dollars, money, cost, or charge.

Half·tones     noun  /ˈhafˌtōnz/

Join us for our fourth annual No Bones for Halftones event – a completely free, one night, screenprinting event where we bring great art together with great community. We’re all about making art accessible.

What to expect

You bring the clothes – whether that’s some old rags, new kicks or something you picked up at the thriftshop – and we’ll screen print awesome artwork for free!


We’re bringing together 12 local Portland artists to premier a unique design created especially for the NBFH event. These designs rotate every half hour so make sure you catch the right time, or better yet, bring enough clothes and get every design printed! There will be free beer, great artist merchandise, and an amazing crowd!

Design Week

DWP-Badge-GreenNo Bones gets bigger and better every year. This year is no exception as we’ve been asked to be a part of Design Week Portland – a week long celebration of our local design culture!  The depths of Portland’s design scene run deep and it’s a privilege to be a part of such a great community.
