What is the essence of Portland, Oregon? Doughnuts? Weirdness? Community? Protests? Great craft beer, booze and wine? Music & clubs? Books & reading? Bikes & biking? Chicks & chickens? Eating local? Progressive politics? Portlandia the statue?
And it is so much more too. Portland is a state of mind, it is being open to something (anything!) new and different. It is definitely creativity and observing creativity. And at The Faux Museum it is oddness, wonder, fun and funny, and of course... thinking critically.
Remember, Keep Portland Weird!
