Public Art: Visual Arts Venues in Portland, Oregon
You can’t visit Portland without encountering public art. The central city is home to a surprising mix of artistic styles, materials and settings. You’ll find public art integrated into architectural façades, along the street, in the parks, inside public buildings and in the sculpture garden outside of the Portland Art Museum.
If the weather isn’t cooperating for an outdoor tour, visit the Public Art Gallery on the second floor of the Portland Building to get an overview of public art in the region and to learn the story behind the creation of “Portlandia.”
This guide, produced in partnership with the Regional Arts & Culture Commission, is also available in print format at the Visitors Information Center in downtown Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.
