This All Happened More or Less

SE Division Street, Portland OR
Commissioned 2012 by the City of Portland, OR
Cast bronze mounted on dolomite

The moments captured by these sculptures are quiet and simple and everyday, mirroring the familiar scenes that can occur on a street like Division. Unlike a statue of a hero or icon, whose story is legend, these people are like you. They are mysterious, complicated, and everyone is invited to guess what goes on in their lives. The stones are monuments to these moments - platforms for the characters, whose purpose is to draw attention to them, but the surrounding cityscape is their stage.
