These fotos are from the Niki McClure exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland. I’ve been a big Niki M. fan for a while and currently, thanks to sista Lyd, rock a Niki calendar in my bedroom. She does amazing paper cutting art and it was wonderful to see her work up close and personal. She’s also a pretty rad lady and it was neat to learn about her connections to some of our favorite bands, the riot girl movement and the general awesomeness of the pacific north west’s art scene.
These bikes were on display as part of the, Oregon Manifest, show at the Portland’s Museum of Contemporary Craft. The bikes were designed and created as part of OM’s 2011 Constructor’s Design Challenge—a competition to build the best utility bicycle. The entries were pretty cool. The winner of the contest is pictured above and a few other runners up are posted below.
Matt and I traveled to NE Portland last night to see Miranda July’s new film, The Future. It was amazing. Check out the trailer above. A word of warning, I totally cried during this movie. There’s a whole, cat in an animal shelter, angle, which is pretty heart wrenching, but the movie as a whole is great!
