And a good thing, because the building looks really shabby. Unfortunately you can’t see the sculpture at all.

Portlandia is a sculpture by Raymond Kaskey located above the entrance of the Portland Building, in downtown Portland, Oregon, at 1120 SW 5th Avenue. It is the second-largest copper repoussé statue in the United States, after the Statue of Liberty.

Eric, our tour guide, gave a great overview of the downtown, including historical facts and sights. His knowledge and personality made the experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for knowledge of Portland, Oregon.

Porltandia is amazing but to really see her you need to be standing across the street - driving by does not give you a good view and neither does being on the same side and trying to crane your neck to see her. The building...More
