Pliable Planes

January 8, 2017

Local weaver and textile designer Jessica Hickey provides unique artistic expression in the Portland Building’s latest art installation, Pliable Planes

The installation is a quilted, scaled-down version of the Portland Building.  The soft façade depicts hidden parallels in architecture and textiles, including the visual language of patterned grids and lines.

The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) sponsors the Installation Art Series.  Selected through a juried process, each installation questions common perspectives through art. 

Pliable Plans is up from January 13 until February 6 in the Portland Building’s lobby.   

Check out RACC’s website for more information.
