Portland Dog Bowl

Portland Dog Bowl

This silly thing by William Wegman got a bunch of publicity when it was installed, the end of a push to generate excitement about the Pearl District in 2005.

It’s located in the North Park Blocks, between Davis and Everett Streets.  It is cute?  Is it a joke about the Simon Benson water fountains?  Did Wegman sketch it on a napkin over sushi with some enamored public arts administrator? Yeah, we get it.

Extraordinary claims need extraordinatry evidence.
