Visiting the Portland Art Museum

Well, all, I’m off to the Pacific Northwest again next week! My one definite plan is to take in the Portland Art Museum. It’s kinda ridiculous that I’ve been to Portland twice already and never made it there. The current exhibition list is really impressive:

Virtual Worlds: M.C. Escher and Paradox
Through Sept. 13: Printmaker Maurits Cornelis Escher created visual puzzles in which logic and absurdity coexist. This exhibition traces the development of the artist’s work from his early stylized depictions of landscape and architecture to his later use of repeated geometric patterns.

Marking Portland: The Art of Tattoo
Through Sept 7: Experience the art of tattoo—through time and across cultures—with Museum-wide kiosks showcasing tattoo-related art from the permanent collections and interactive, multimedia presentations featuring Portland-area tattoos and their stories.

Sensitive Vision: The Prints of Beth Van Hoesen
Through Aug. 16: This retrospective of prints by San Francisco artist Beth Van Hoesen features approximately 70 prints drawn from the permanent collection of the Portland Art Museum.

Can’t wait! See y’all in 10 days!
