The Tall Trees of Portland by Matt Wagner

In this second book of Matt Wagner’s survey of international contemporary art, he turns his eye to his hometown of Portland, OR. He’s chosen 40 artists who embody the independent ethos that Portland is known for and shows readers what’s happening in the city’s vibrant visual arts scene right now. Wagner has created a portrait of a city that nurtures artists and art in a way few other cities do. These “tall trees” stand out for creating the bold and unique works that led art critic Peter Plagens to wonder in The Wall Street Journal if Portland might be “America’s next art capital.”
