Cy Twombly at Portland Art Museum
A favorite Portland indoor hike is the through-the-tunnel and up-the-stairs trek to the Miller-Miegs space on the 4th floor of the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art at the Portland Art Museum (note: name almost as long as trek). Starting today in that space, find three recent works by influential gestural abstractionist Cy Twombly, two paintings and a bronze sculpture.
One of the works, "Untitled," is from his "A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things" series, a "peony" painting.
