Interlocking Forms - by Don Wilson, 1977


These reddish plywood boxes hold Interlocking Forms, 1977, by Don Wilson. It’s a fairly immovable sculpture set in front of the Portland Building on SW 6th Avenue, and it’s been there since about 1977.

As the sculptures begin to return to the Transit Mall after a couple of years in storage, it’s a good time to revisit these works and figure out if they have relevance in our current century.

I appreciate they left breathing holes.
