Quality is Contagious: John Economaki and Bridge City Tool Works

Aug 16, 2013 - Jan 18, 2014


Free for Museum members and the PNCA community; $4 general admission.


Drawing on his background in industrial design and knowledge of construction needs, Economaki established Bridge City Tool Works in 1983. Using digital technology to create tools to be passed down from one generation to the next, the company’s products, sketches, and tools from the past thirty years will be on view for the first time. The exhibition will be accompanied by a full catalog as well as interactive programming in The Lab. Further, Quality is Contagious provides a Portland connection leading into the upcoming exhibition, The Tool at Hand.

Curated by Nicole Nathan in collaboration with John Economaki
