Choreographer Twyla Tharp said that art is the only way to run away without leaving home, and since no one would ever leave their homes in the wonderful city of Portlandia, they explore the outside world through art. There are artists all over the city of Portlandia. They are making jewelry, carving furniture, making bad art for good walls and so much more. But you wouldn’t expect artists in Portlandia to create average or typical art would you? No, artists in Portlandia make unconventional and unexpected art in the least likely of places. In the middle of a busy street, for example. If you go to a gallery opening and are just looking at what’s hanging on the walls, you’ll miss some of the best creations.
