David Lynch (who was partially raised in the Northwest) has published a book of his sketches, take a look at them in the Guardian

And PAM hires a new Print and Drawings Curator
Mary Weaver Chapin. I met her a few years back during The Dancer: Edgar Degas, Jean-Louis Forain and Tolouse-Lautrec show in 2008 at PAM. She made an immediate impression on me as an incredibly knowledgeable and articulate scholar of Tolouse-Lautrec. She's also from the Milwaukee Art Museum (my old stomping grounds... also, another connection: Sue Taylor was once a Curator of Drawings and Prints there as well). Since PAM's print collection is incredibly strong on German expressionism it will be interesting to see how her program develops? In the last decade drawing has had an incredible resurgence so it will be interesting to see how she handles recent history? (BTW it was announced earlier this year that DK would stop writing reviews
and stick to these sorts of announcements after he was repeatedly shamed over lazy reviews
of more conceptual shows... look the only bittersweet part of this is his coming back to criticism... he can write decently but only when it is something he has a feel for, BTW which isn't fundraising either).
The Portland Building made history and is now on the National Register
. It took a long time but now with the Arial Tram, a new transit pedestrian bridge, Charles Rose at OCAC
and Kengo Kuma at the Japanese Garden
... Portland once again is using major talented architects from outside the city.
