Local Arts


Local Muscle has roots in the Portland arts and music community and we’re very supportive of the Portland art scene. We’ve transformed one of our moving trucks into a mobile art gallery! Selected as Best Non-Gallery Art Space of 2014 by the Portland Phoenix, it can be seen at every First Friday Art Walk, as well as other events throughout the region.

Film Fest!
Our Valentine’s Day film festival is now in its fourth year and well established as an annual event. It’s a great opportunity for local film makers to get their name out there and to help support the growth of Portland’s film scene. We’ve recently been working with Portland’s local Community Television Network (that’s channel 5), who have been nice enough to host our 2014 film fest footage for all to view on their website! You can check it out by clicking on this link.

If you are interested in showing your art work in our truck (parked in front of Reny’s) at the First Friday Art Walk, please contact us at lmarttruck@gmail.com.

Ned Swain, one of Local Muscle’s founding partners, recently gave a TEDx talk about our approach to moving. We think it really exemplifies our belief that the best way to approach a difficult task is to remain upbeat and positive.

Ned’s TEDx Talk:

During our first Summer in 2010, Local Muscle assembled a series of performances in order to engage the public on the merits of a superior move. See Local Muscle take to the streets to prove why they are the best moving company in town.
