Another Thing That Never Happened in Chicago

Filed under: Art, Portland — Tom @ 11:15 pm

The SculptureI didn’t really know my neighbors in Chicago. We had some interaction because we were all members of a self-managed condominium association, but we weren’t what you’d call close. And I certainly didn’t have cool artist neighbors who let me display their work in my home until they sell it.

But here in Portland one of the people on my block is Samir Sankari, who does some fantastic metal sculpture. Most of his work can be displayed outside and his pieces can be seen all along our street. The piece shown here is a bit different — he incorporated some driftwood he came across and it’s one of the few that needs to be indoors. Fortunately, he offered to let me hang onto it until a buyer comes along.
