Janet Julian at the Bathtub Art Museum

You know you're in Portland when you go to a friends art show and it's at a, uh, museum in a bathtub.

Fun and funky and Janet Julian for sure.  You crawl into the bathtub, in the middle of which you stand up in to have half of your upper body in a treehouse-like building where you find the art!


Janet's work is great, it's got a sense of whimsy, maybe absurdity, and it's always a little crazy (in the good way).  I imagine Janet in her workspace staring at something wondering how it will be completed and then a light turns on and she runs around looking for something and glues it in place!

Janet's one of my favorites.
