Museum of Contemporary Craft


I just visited the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland. It is a free museum, located in downtown Portland.

Currently, they have exhibits with Mandy Greer and Daniel Morris. Mandy Greer works with beads and fabric and has made some beautiful chandelier-like pieces. She says that she gets her inspiration from mythological stories.

Daniel Morris' pieces deal with issues of poverty and class. For example, one of his pieces; hand woven on a piece of fabric; is of a funeral, and the title is "Who will mourn when who has died?" Maybe he is using his artwork as a therapeutic process.

This museum also has a very gallery for local craft artists, with beautiful quilts, scarves and jewelry, and pottery. It was a very inspiring experience.
