A walk around downtown Portland any day can be a feast for the eyes. Whether it's people watching, store fronts or galleries, there's always something to see.
Take the artwork currently installed in the Coleman Burke Gallery at Port City Music Hall (504 Congress St.):
"Looking In | Looking Out" is courtesy on Amy Jorgensen and it puts a big eye on passers-by and the city. According to the gallery website it's a "site-specific installation comparing the difference between the time we spend looking within ourselves and looking outside ourselves."
See it - and contemplate it - through March 24.
Just across the street, at SPUN Arts & Apparel (543 Congress St.), you'll find this eye-catching work of window art:
It's cool, colorful and fits in perfectly in Portland's arts district.
