Fresh art at Portland International Airport

Oregon’s Portland International Airport is showcasing work from artist Marshall Roemen in the north ticket lobby.

Roemen’s site-specific installation is inspired by American author Flannery O’Connor, particularly her collection of short-stories entitled, Everything That Rises Must Converge, which she was working on at the time of her death.

Here’s a link to more images from Roemen’s PDX installation.

Curious about O’Connor’s work? It’s a good bet you’ll find her books (new or used) at one of the airport’s three (!) branches of Powell’s Books.
