Dear Portland,

Portland Art Museum is Fashionable!! (who would have thought)

Our quaint museum is a lovely refuge with some great pieces but it is rarely hip let alone fashionable. Until recently when I wandered onto the basement level exhibition to be wonderfully surprised with the relevance and style of Two-Way Street the Photographs of Garry Winogrand and Jonathan Brand. With fashion being ever effected by the art of street photography in the countless blogs now: The SartorialistStreet Peeper,  All The Pretty Birds, to name a few. The photos in Two-Way Street are even more poignant to the realm of fashion over lapping with art. They do   capture the personality of the street while giving us a scene of nostalgia and texture of days past. The most fascinating part of all is that the fashion in many of these 1960's black and white photos could be mistaken for today. See what you think, show runs until August 24!

Note: I will be merging my fashion blog into my art blog! This Museum show only proved to me further that art/fashion belong together!
