Keeping it weird...

Portland, Oregon's unofficial motto: "Keep Portland Weird" appears on billboards, bumper stickers and walls throughout the city. It perfectly summarizes their quirky, funky attitude. Portland has become a favourite destination for my wife and I.

You'll find a lot of public art throughout the core of the city. Most of it is off-the-wall and some of it is downright strange in keeping with their motto.

Kinetic art sways in the wind in downtown Portland...
The kinetic art installation above is located across from their famous bookstore Powell's Book Store. The centre piece rotates and sways in the wind.

Elsewhere we encountered this bizarre thing that looked like a cross between an angry root vegetable and that damn creepy guy-in-a-rabbit suit from the movie Donnie Darko.

Weird or angry art?
