Art In Portland

I believe that art in city not only make the city more beautiful 
but it can tell the story of the city and its people. Art also brings hope and beauty 
to the dullest and darkest places. While doing this project I learned that Art is a big part of portland.
It gives people the chance to express them selves and gives others a chance to under stand the people of Portland. I also learned that You don't have to look that long to find a beautiful pice of art in Portland.
