Pendleton calling

February 7, 2014

I come from a tiny town in eastern Oregon, Pendleton, where I spent most of January. I’m proud of its authentic western charm, but often feel like my adult life is completely alienated from its smallness and remoteness. Walking in the sculpture garden at the Hirshhorn, I found a sculpture by an artist from Pendleton! Somehow it seemed like a sign. Thanks Kenneth Snelson, b. 1927, Pendleton, Oregon.

    I love this little story! It does feel like a sign. The sculpture has a beautiful geometric design as well (so tall!).
