Portraits On A Fence, Van Buren and West 2nd Avenue, As A Collaboration Form Of Art, Eugene, Oregon
A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer. [from wikipedia]

Beyond the fence, and behind the portraits was a wall also made up of art. The portraits were each of a different face, and none were signed, hence the artist was unknown.

Five paintings lined Van Buren Street, just north of W. 2nd Avenue. That corner was a gravel parking lot surrounded by a fence. The portraits were hung from the fence.

Another portrait showed a woman with brown hair against a yellow background. She wore dangling earrings and a blue blouse.

The portrait of a woman's face against a candy pink background. The background color was echoed by the tail light of a parked car.

Just around the corner from the portraits, that same fence was decorated with string. The string, in different colors, was stretched into triangle shapes to create a diamond, a heart, and a stick person under a flying saucer.
