Since then she has tirelessly championed public art in Portland – making an impact and delighting us all! Alice founded TEMPOart Portland in 2014 and through the organization she helped make Portland a city rich in public art. The installation of this eight foot long, permanent sculpture of a PINECONE in Deering Oaks Park will be a forever reminder to all who happen upon it about Alice’s hard work.
