PORTLAND ART MUSEUM
This lighting restoration, replication, & retrofit project for the Portland Art Museum’s Mark Building included luminaires ranging from small single-lamp sconces to chandeliers five feet in diameter, from freestanding torchiers to large exterior sconces. The fixtures, reflecting a wide range of materials and manufacturing techniques, were originally in disrepair. After restoration, the results were breathtaking and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. See the Art Museum Case Study for more information.
While the most spectacular chandeliers are in the Art Museum’s ballroom (and may not be available for viewing) you can see the large exterior sconces on the Mark Building along 10th Avenue, and if open, you can see the small chandeliers in the upper lobby area at the front (along 9th). Feel welcome to visit the Crumpacker Family Library while you're here, located on the 2nd floor of the Mark building. The region's most comprehensive art library, it is open to the public Sunday through Wednesday, noon to 5pm.
