Dream Trip to Portland

December 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’ve had a big, fat crush on Portland, OR since getting involved in affordable art three or four years ago. It goes without saying that so, so many of the artists I love and feature on Art Hound make and show their art in this beloved city.

One of these days I’m going to take a trip to Portland and stay at the Ace Hotel which seems to embody many of the qualities the city and its residents are known for: creativity, quirkiness, a d.i.y. sensibility and a laid-back attitude. The hotel commissioned local artists to decorate each of the guest rooms and the resulting designs are vibrant, fresh and very Portland!
