Oregon’s Portland International Airport has a nice exhibit featuring the work of eight Oregon luthiers who make everything from guitars and ukuleles to mandolins and lutes – from scratch.
The one-of-a-kind instruments are on exhibit in Concourse A and use ‘ingredients’ that include 700-year-old reclaimed wood, stunning inlays and rosettes, tropical woods and scalloped fretboards.
In addition, the airport is displaying (just till mid-April) four decommissioned violins that have been ‘re-interpreted’ by local artists for the Painted Violin Project – a national fundraising program that raises money for youth orchestras.
