One of the most interesting and beloved public art pieces in Portland is Helen Lessick's “Tree House for Summer”, a house made from Living Trees housed in Portland Hoyt Arboretum.

Helen is a dear friend of mine who now lives in LA.

She was recently up visiting Portland for the celebration of her Tree House's 30th anniversary. Helen also had a new exhibit up at Jeffery Thomas Gallery along with a fine new catalog of her work.
