Hidden Portland: The Museums

The ink is still wet so you will want to be at the First Thursday Opening at Reading Frenzy and get one of the Limited Edition handmade books by Carye Bye. Hidden Portland: The Museums, is Carye Bye’s first self-published book. This is her premier publication but she is also known by many as “The Local Museum Lady” for her amazing map of Hidden Portland – an online museum guide as well as her famous bike rides that she organizes for different groups in Portland. The 100+ page guide book/artist book contains mostly museums in Portland. She highlights mostly free and funky places and pairs them with special illustrations. Reading Frenzy’s 1st Thursday Art Show will feature the postcard-sized original illustrations & will be available for purchase.

I actually was able to be with the artist at a few places in the book! She opened my eyes to some news things at Portland Art Museum, Dan & Louie's Oyster Bar and Voodoo Doughnut. Yes, those last two are in the book and you have to buy it to find out why! That's the hidden-part of this book. Discover Carye Bye as she has already made quite the impression on Portland with her great work on Red Bat Press.
