Inspire Me

Yesterday I escaped. To the Museum.

In 2005, the Portland Art Museum opened the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art, and yesterday, I fell in love. Below are some exhibits and paintings that inspired me. All for different reasons, and all on different mediums. Enjoy.

The writing that reads on this piece is quoted from Carlito's Way (A classic 1993 Al Pacino and Sean Penn film) and is as follows:

Sorry, boys, all the stitches in the world can’t sew me together again... 
Lay down. Lay down. 
Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez Funeral Home on 109th street... 
Always knew I’d make a stop there, but a lot later than a whole gang of people thought. 
Last of the Mo-Rican’s. 
Well, maybe not the last. 

Gail’s gonna be a good mom. 
New, improved Carlito Brigante. 
Hope she uses the money to get out. No room in this city for big hearts like hers... 

Sorry, baby, I tried the best I could. 
Can’t come with me on this trip, though... 
Gettin’ the shakes now. Last call for drinks. 
Bar’s closin’ down. Sun’s out. 
Where we goin’ for breakfast? Don’t wanna go far... 
Rough night. 
Tired, baby... Tired...
