Portland Views

Four pieces of public art, created by RIGGA - a group of local artists, are featured between the Morrison Bridge and the floating walkway [of the Eastside Esplanade.]

The Alluvial Wall, clings to a concrete retaining wall and echoes the natural shape of the river before Portland was Portland. It alludes to the interwoven layers of the river's pre-industrial geology and human artifacts; an amalgam of sedimentation and erosion formed of cold-forged steel plate with bronze castings lodged between its layers.
