The Port of Vancouver USA submitted its Terminal 1 Concept Development Plan (CDP) application to the City of Vancouver on Dec. 23, marking a major milestone in the process to redevelop its birthplace on the Columbia River. The CDP application is a detailed plan about Terminal 1 with information about planned land uses, including the port’s plans for a hotel, public marketplace, commercial and retail space, public art and connection to the city’s Renaissance Trail. The port expects this process to be completed in 2017. In the meantime, the port continues to keep the site vibrant and open to the public. New restaurant WareHouse ’23 and adjacent event space are open for business, and starting in January the port will host a new lecture series in the former Red Lion hotel.

Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, is open for a fews more days at the Portland Art Museum. This retrospective exhibition of approximately 250 Andy Warhol prints and ephemera from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer is the largest of its kind ever to be presented. It spans two floors of the museum and includes instantly recognizable images such as Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Soup Can (Tomato) and Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn).
“The Portland Art Museum’s ambitious overview of Andy Warhol’s prints offers an opportunity to see the artist anew,” observes Richard H. Axsom, contributing essayist to the exhibition catalogue. “Playing upon and manipulating the imagery of popular culture, Warhol fashioned in his major print series a body of work of immeasurable power. Under-appreciated is its profound humanity, often obscured by the glamor and glitz of Warhol’s public persona.”
Admission to the exhibit is free with admission to the Portland Art Musuem. For nonmembers, admission is $19.99 for adults, $16.99 for seniors, and free with student ID. To learn more, visit www.portlandartmuseum.org.
