Alex and I just attended a wonderful exhibit and lecture on the environmentalist and architect John Yeon.

Former art critic and currently head of the U of O John Yeon Center, Randy Gragg, gave an extremely informative and interesting lecture. I learned that John Yeon successfully lobbied that a portion of highway 101 conform naturally to the terrain rather than going straight by blasting away part of Mt. Neakahnie. Forevermore, I will never travel on that 101 hairpin curve and its pullout view parking areas without thinking of John Yeon!
