Fresh and tasty art at Portland International Airport

Between the herds of food trucks and the bevy of highly-rated restaurants, Portland, Oregon has become a foodie’s mecca.

Now there’s an exhibit of photographs by Dave Lutz at Portland International Airport (PDX) celebrating that chow-centric culture. The photos Lutz chose for this show feature culinary landmarks, including Andina, Bar Mingo, Beast, Huber’s, Jacobsen Salt Co., Le Pigeon, iorio, Nostrana, Paley’s Place, Papa Haydn, Stumptown Coffee Roasters and the Tabor Czech food cart. And each photograph is accompanied by a description of the place and people pictured.

Whether you’ve eaten at any of these beloved Portland hotspots, be sure head down the PDX Concourse Connector (post-security) next time you’re at Portland International Airport. PDX art program coordinators promise you’ll find out which local chefs are multiple James Beard Award winners and “how a local staple grew from the back of a Ford Pinto into a national chain.”
