Mount Hood is a key part of Portland’s skyline, seated atop the Cascade Range to the east of the city. Residents and visitors alike look forward to when the clouds part and the mountain is visible, admiring how its snowy slopes vary from hour to hour, season to season. Whether admired from afar or up close by those who hike and climb the peak, Mount Hood is an iconic symbol of Portland. The purpose of this exhibit is to explore images and views of Mount Hood through paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and multimedia art.
