The power of words

 Widely celebrated artist Jenny Holzer is here in Portland to present one of her thought provoking projections. She has projected images and text on some of the most powerful and well known venues including the German Parliament, the Guggenheim museums in New York, Bilboa and Spain, state of the art skyscrapers and ancient tombs.  Portland is one of the smallest locations she has worked on and many of her pieces educate and inform highlighting violence, oppression or injustice. In Portland she is projecting work from Nobel Prize-winning poet Wislawa Szymborska on the walls of the Portland Museum of Art. This is a not-to-miss opportunity to see such powerful exhibition. Jenny will be at the Holiday Inn By the Bay at 5:30 for a lecture, followed by the projection at 7:00-10:00 in Congress Square.  For more information visit portlandmuseum.org
