Ventana al Pacifico

Ventana al Pacifico

Photos of Ventana al Pacifico, a sculpture by Manuel Neri at the front entrance to Portland's Gus Solomon Courthouse at SW 6th & Main. A 2005 Portland Public Art post about it is mostly about its strange, awkward location, on a perch high above the main entrance and off to one side. It's a shame because it's a mysterious and attractive piece; apparently it's also far too valuable to let the unwashed masses near it. If you really need a better look, the Smithsonian does own a roughly-similar maquette for the piece, which may or may not be on display at any given time.
