Bridge for Blankets

If you were curious about the recent colorful additions to the Broadway Bridge, the Multnomah County website has a quick introductory article with artist Tyler Mackie, who talks about the project in honor of the Portland icon’s 100th birthday. After the run of the installation, the piece will be divided and donated as blankets to community based organizations.
