Around Town Wednesday

We were out and about today and here’s what we saw…we drove by the storefront where Mary Lou Zeek’s new “pop-up” show BLINK opens on February 23 (in between Magoo’s and the OLCC store on SE Commercial Street).  The gala is Tuesday, February 24 from 5-7 and should be fun.  She has a new idea this year…a “work-on-paper” room in the rear of the galley where lots of us will have drawings up…hope you can come take a look.

we noted Bruce West’s nice sculpture has been sited downtown at the corner of Liberty and State…nice to see it out and about…

even though it might be slightly too close to the trash can and the light pole…?

And then who should we spy…they keep moving this banner around but it’s always fun to run across it someplace…


Well today was Kate Brown’s inauguration day as governor…taking over for the newly resigned John Kitzhaber…sad moment…but on we go.


and on the way home to watch the news, we noted the media was in full swing…
