Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon

Recommended

Portland Art Museum (map) Southwest
Tues-Sun at 10 am. Through Sept 3

Compared to contemporaries like Walter Gropius and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, architect John Yeon’s legacy is a modest one. He wasn’t responsible for splashy skyscrapers, modernist churches, or enormous public buildings. In fact, a number of his projects—like the Rose Building that now sits in Tom McCall Waterfront Park and the Shaw House in Lake Oswego—have been radically altered from their original form. In spite of that, the impact of Yeon’s life and work has slowly resonated throughout the Northwest and beyond. ROBERT HAM
