Portland Oregon Arts Scene

I went to a fabulous research tool on the web called
I keyed in Portland, but you can ask for art info anywhere in the USA!

I went to the Portland Weekly which is reported to have an excellent arts & entertainment listing.
I added up 303 art galleries. That is amazing, especially since so many art galleries have closed up & gone with online features. 

In addition to the Portland Opera there is an addition Broadway Series including the Book Of Mormon, but also

When a child, I went to see Margot Fonteyn & Rudolf Nureyev in Portland. They were touring with the Royal Ballet. I would go to the stage door & wait inside the hallway stairs to collect my autographs. I have five ballet programs from Portland where I have original signatures within from that era in my life. (The early sixties)  

I have great plans to revisit Portland as an arts mecca, with my personal taste & formal education now under my belt. I'll keep you in the loop.
