Put a Bird On It!

Very Nice spot downtown. Yes it's in the opening credits of the show "Portlandia". Could only be better if they "PUT A BIRD ON IT".

It's a gorgeous statue in the middle of downtown. Worth seeing, but just as good if you drive by slowly.

The big statue is all there is to see. Dont bother making a special trip to check it out becuase you will wonder why you wasted your time.

Portlandia hangs out often missed by passers by (especially if you're engrossed in your phone!) She is an impressive statue and an iconic one atop the Portland building. Totally worth the very little effort to visit if one is in Portlandia!

Walk by and have a look, on the Portland building is the 2nd largest copper statue in the USA. And although her image is part of the State Seal, the City cannot use any replication of this statue. YOu should ask why....

Perched on a ledge over the entrance of The Portland Building kneels Portlandia. A giant titan holding a trident in her left hand. While reaching down toward the sidewalk as if casting dice in a crap game. The branches of trees that have grown over the years since Portlandia took up residence at The Portland Building has partially obscured her... More

One of the many artworks and sculptures around Portland. It's fun to get around and see just how many you can find.

Directly across the street is a building with an open escalator on which you can access the second floor and unbeatable views of Portlandia. She's lovely and gracious in person, and worth the extra steps.

I had to see this statue as I am a fan of the TV show "Portlandia." It is very cool but a little creepy if you're like me and watched movies like "Jason and the Argonauts" where statues come to life.

I took a tour of The Best Of Portland and found this huge statue of Portlandia. Wow! Her baby finger is the same height as me. Too bad they are talking about tearing down the building.
