The Portland Art Museum’s exhibition “Blue Sky at 40” opens today showing 120 works that have been exhibited at the Blue Sky Gallery, also known as the Oregon Center for Photographic Arts. Blue Sky, founded by Christopher Rauschenberg, is a creative, nurturing institution and an essential resource for documentary photographers and educators. Happy birthday Blue Sky!
This image Tyson Johnson III, 2004 from the Purple Hearts series, is part of the exhibition. I’m very grateful to the Portland Art Museum for continuing to show this image – this will be the 3rd time the print has been on display since the Museum acquired it in 2005. The exhibition runs through January 11, 2015.
