I've never understood the attraction to this statue. School kids make pilgrimages here and everything! When the building itself wasn't under construction, you could stand across the street from it and enjoy it for about a minute, and then continue on your way. But, now,...More

Even though architectural critics pooh pooh this sculpture, it's so Portland! not as gorgeous as the cities botanical wonders (gardens, forests), but irreverent, and another poke at the officious East coast museum snobs who only like Rodin....

Portlandia is a must see. Beautiful, elegant and strong. It’s a shame it’s place where it is. A bit hard to find, and parking is a big pain.

We discovered Portlandia on a walking tour which was so well worth it! From our hotel, The Nines, we actually realized we had a view straight down SW 5th Avenue and could see Portlandia. It is huge!
